O3b and Ozonio to launch satellite broadband to Amazon region

O3b Networks has entered the Brazilian market, bringing satellite-based connectivity to mobile network operators, local ISPs and government. The service is available for residential, corporate and government customers in the city of Tefe (population 60,000) in partnership with regional distributor Ozonio.

The O3b model is based on the “pay as you grow” concept, allowing the customer to purchase the amount of capacity required, then increasing it over time as needed, paying a monthly fee. In addition to Tefe, other remote Brazilian cities with significant population density, but with poor internet connectivity and mobile service no better than 2G, will also be targeted by O3b.
