O3b Networks, the medium earth orbit satellite constellation providing fibre quality connectivity to the emerging markets, has picked up a  trio of awards from the financing community on the back of the highly innovative $770m project financing it completed in November 2010.

On top of being awarded African Telecom Deal of the Year 2010 from both of the leading Project Finance journals “Project Finance Magazine” and “Project Finance International”, O3b has now also been awarded the prestigious Deal of the Year 2010 from “Trade Finance Magazine”.
