The first four satellites have been in orbit since June 2013, while the second batch, launched on July 10, 2014. The constellation of 8 became fully operational in September. The services offered by these eight satellites are highly successful confirming the validity of the O3b design based on high-throughput and low latency.

Positioned at an altitude of 8,062 kilometers (about 5,000 miles), four times closer to the earth than geostationary satellites, these Ka-band satellites offer high speed, low-latency connectivity to Internet and telecommunications service providers in emerging markets. O3b Networks supplies trunking and mobile backhaul connectivity services to telecom operators and service providers at speeds comparable to those offered by fiber-optic networks.

Jean Loïc Galle, CEO of Thales Alenia Space said: “This launch is a new major step in the deployment of the O3b constellation and provides further proof of Thales Alenia Space's leadership in telecom constellations. We are very proud to be working with our customer O3b on this exciting endeavor that provides telecommunications services and high-speed Internet connectivity to billions of people who were previously unable to access broadband services.”

Steve Collar, CEO of O3b said: “O3b already provides connections to customers who bring life changing connectivity in remote places such as Papua New Guinea, East Timor, The Cook Islands, the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan and customer feedback has been excellent. O3b Networks is definitively a “game changer” for Internet connectivity and we are pleased to have a strong partnership with Thales Alenia Space to provide the O3b satellites”.
