  1. Hi Om,
    I am alive and well!
    You are correct, O3b started with a 16 satellite plan, but originally financed only the first 8. We have since ordered another 4, bringing the total to 12, which will double the capacity of the first 8 (which is a pretty cool feature of the system’s continually improving cost structures). For billions of under-served, no other technology will be able to give the low latency, high speed and low cost combination.
    O3b is on solid footing with an excellent team. SES has been a great partner and more which has really helped us ensure we are building a carrier class service. At this point, with the company well focused, funded and most importantly able to meet its mission goals, I am focusing on a few other ideas, yet still have full interest, excitement, passion and communication with the team which drives O3b forward on a daily basis.
    Hats off to the large base of investors who passionately believed in the mission of O3b and joined together to help make it happen.

    Thanks for asking!

  2. Hi Greg – would love to chat with you about this KA-band project. Maybe you can catch me on LinkedIn (don’t wanna violate any policies on this website)..
