Viettel Timor Unipessoal Lda (Telemor) and SES have renewed their eight-year partnership in which SES will support Telemor in delivering upgraded mobile connectivity to Timor-Leste.

Under the terms of the new agreement, Telemor will increase its service uptake using SES’s O3b constellation operating in medium earth orbit. Since 2015, Telemor has been using O3b’s combination of high throughput and low latency to deliver high-quality mobile data services to its subscribers in the country.

“The expanded partnership marks a major milestone in our eight-year partnership with Telemor to deliver a game-changing internet experience to businesses and residents,” said Harsh Verma, vice president of enterprise and cloud in Asia at SES.

“As Timor-Leste looks to accelerate digital inclusion and offer adequate speed and qualitative connectivity, we at SES are thrilled to see how much high-performance, low-latency, satellite-enabled connectivity will bring online services closer to the East Timorese population.”

With mobile phone subscriptions in Timor-Leste reaching 106.5 per 100 people in 2023, Telemor will meet users’ increasing needs for more bandwidth and level up the connectivity experience to serve up to 1.4 million consumers as well as businesses.

In addition, subscribers will be able to experience video applications and voice communications whether from ultra-connected urban areas or remote villages.

Specifically, the service uptake will enable uninterrupted access to data-hungry online services delivered through various CDNs to serve large volumes of daily online requests from subscribers.

“For the last couple of years, we have been cementing our position as the leading operator with the highest number of subscriptions in Timor-Leste and are committed to delivering the superior internet experience needed by our subscribers,” said Brian Tran Van Bang, CEO at Telemor.

“We are glad to continue partnering with SES to make reliable, high-speed connectivity a reality, especially for remote locations where connectivity opens up new digitally-enabled economic opportunities that would otherwise be inaccessible."
