Fact Sheets

Advancing Timor-Leste’s Autonomous Telecommunications Landscape (ATLATL) is working to promote business-friendly policy and investment in the information communication technology sector. Timor-Leste is one of the very few countries in the world not connected to the internet via fiber optic cable. As such, internet speeds are typically 25 times slower than other Asian and Pacific countries, and costs are considerably higher due to dependence on satellite connections. Only 25 percent of Timorese use the internet regularly, compared to 46 percent for other Asian and Pacific countries. Policy development in the Information Communication Technology (ICT) sector is lacking, which limits private sector investment needed to increase internet speeds and improve products and services available in Timor-Leste.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the U.S. Government has committed more than $775 million in emergency health, humanitarian, economic and development assistance specifically aimed at helping governments, international organizations, and NGOs fight the pandemic.
