O3b satellites orbit the earth in Medium Earth Orbit, one quarter the distance and one quarter the latency of geostationary satellites – resulting into improved voice, data and video performance on fixed or mobile devices.

Bharti Airtel will use the improved connectivity to support growth of 2G, 3G customers across Timor-Leste, replacing the bulk of geostationary-based capacity from other service providers.
