The Republic of Nauru has around 10,000 residents populating a 21 square kilometre area. Digicel Pacific has been providing connectivity over the O3b satellite-enabled network to the island since January 2015, and has since upgraded its bandwidth by 108.6 percent over a series of three upgrades. With this boost in O3b's connectivity service, Digicel Pacific has deployed LTE mobile services.
