OneWeb is a global communications network company that is powered by a constellation of 650 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. OneWeb is enabling high-speed, low latency connectivity for governments, businesses, and communities everywhere around the world.
OneWeb’s satellites, together with a network of global gateway stations and a range of User Terminals, will provide an affordable, fast, high bandwidth, low-latency communications service that is connected to the future of IoT (Internet of Things), and a pathway to 5G for everyone, everywhere.
OneWeb was founded with a vision to bridge the digital divide through its network, it was acquired by the UK Government and the Bharti Group in October 2020, and has since welcomed leading satellite communications operator Eutelsat on board, as well as additional investment from SoftBank and Hughes Network Group, a key technology partner.
OneWeb has secured global priority spectrum, has a range of User Terminals in development, has a confirmed launch schedule to scale the constellation, and ground stations situated worldwide, including Norway, Portugal, Alaska, Connecticut, Florida and more.
Throughout 2021, OneWeb is testing its network and conducting demonstrations with key customers in readiness for commercial services to areas above the 50th parallel north before end of year, and then globally in 2022.
