O3b Networks secures first Latin American customer

02 October 2014 |

O3b Networks has secured the first customer for its satellite service in Latin America – Guyana-based ISP E-Networks.

O3b launched its commercial operations in Latin America earlier this year, and E-Networks will utilise its trunking solutions to deliver high-speed broadband across the sovereign state.

“Access to the O3b network gives us the ability to open up new services countrywide where it would otherwise be difficult to have access to fibre. This deployment will be used to further enhance our fibre-optic and 4G data networks,” said Vishok Persaud, MD, E-Networks.

Last month, O3b added four new satellites, extending its coverage to a range of markets, including the Cook Islands, Papua New Guinea and the Democratic of Congo.
