O3b Hits First Year Milestones for its Satellite Network

O3b Networks marked first year of commercial operation, saying its high-throughput, low-latency satellite network has become the fastest growing in satellite history. The company operates a Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite constellation, which at 8000 km, is much closer to the earth than traditional geostationary (GEO) satellites.

O3b’s first year anniversary achievements include:


  • 12 satellites in orbit
  • Initial constellation capacity of 192 Gbps
  • 40 customers in service
  • 31 countries with live customers
  • Already, the capacity that O3b has sold is equivalent to nearly 10% of the contracted capacity of the three largest Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) operators combined.

“Our first year of commercial service has been phenomenal. We couldn’t be happier to see the impact that O3b has had on our customers and their businesses. The breadth of industries and geographies that our customers span reflects the broad based demand for high performance connectivity and we are excited to help our customers take their network capabilities to another level,” stated Steve Collar, CEO, O3b Networks.
