JERSEY, Channel Islands -- O3b Networks announced today that the company entered a multi-year, multi-million dollar commitment with Ozônio Telecomunicações (a Brazilian multimedia communications and Internet service provider) to provide them with low-latency, fiber-speed satellite resources, subject to the launch of, and Brazil’s grant of landing rights for, the O3b constellation of non-geostationary (NGSO) satellites. The commitment will see Ozônio provide Internet and telecommunication services to corporate customers and local government agencies across many remote towns and cities in Brazil’s state of Amazonas. With O3b’s capacity, the people of this region will be able to enjoy Internet access of the same speed and low cost as the more populous parts of the country.

“We are delighted to announce our first commitment in Latin America. We have also now won contracts in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and the Pacific, demonstrating that we are a truly global company. We are proud to be able to work with Ozônio, a company growing and striving to create new Internet and telecommunications solutions for its customers. Upon the successful launch and grant of regulatory approvals, we will help to bring these important broadband services to the Amazon region in the North of Brazil,” said John Finney, Chief Commercial Officer, O3b Networks.
