Federated States of Micronesia Telecommunications Corporation is a public corporation established under Title 21 of the Code of the Federated States of Micronesia, governed under the laws of the FSM.

Its vision is to provide the best possible modern, cost-effective telecommunications services by consistently satisfying the realistic expectations of its customers and stakeholders.

FSMTC is now providing fiber-like speeds to every household in the FSM. It started with the state of Yap, using O3b’s satellite technology with lower latency at more affordable pricing.

Providing services in Micronesia comes with its own set of challenges, but thanks to O3b, the customers of FSMTC will be able to enjoy high quality services, using O3b’s revolutionary MEO satellites at much lower altitudes.


Product: O3bTrunk
Region: Federated States of Micronesia

Customer Solution Benefit: to enable all the households in FSM to have the affordable, high bandwidth, reliable services that O3b can offer.

John D. Sohl, President and CEO, FSMTC says…

“O3b offers us the chance to deploy reliable and scalable technology as we look to improve our network. Providing these services in Micronesia provides its own set of challenges, but there is no reason why our customers should not expect services similar to those enjoyed in developed countries like the US or Australia.”
