      Timor Telecom (TT) has expanded its partnership with SES Networks to enable international voice traffic between Timor-Leste and the rest of the world, SES announced.

      Under the new agreement, TT will contract capacity on the NSS 12 Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) satellite to establish a point-to-point link connecting Dili, Timor with Sintra, Portugal.

      Residents of Timor-Leste already use 4G/LTE mobile data and broadband services provided by TT, which are powered by SES’s O3b Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite network. With its capacity uptake on NSS 12, TT will broaden its suite of services with the carriage of international voice traffic between Timor-Leste and the rest of the world.

      “Since 2014, SES Networks has been our steadfast partner and key enabler in delivering fiber-like high-performance connectivity that is on par with terrestrial service. With the MEO fleet’s unmatched low-latency capabilities, we have been able to deliver dramatically improved mobile data and broadband services throughout the country,” said TT Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Manuel Capitao Amaro.
