OneWeb is a global communications network powered by a constellation of 650 Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. Headquartered in London, 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 connected to the IOT future, and a pathway to 5G for everyone, everywhere.
Founded with a vision to bridge the digital divide through its network, OneWeb was acquired by 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 located 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.
Connect with Purpose
OneWeb exists to remove the barriers to connectivity on Earth that hold economies and communities back. The digital divide no longer solely affects the 3.2billion people in the world who lack access to connectivity infrastructure. Everywhere, there are new divides emerging due to constraints on affordability, speed, and usage. Nearly half the world’s population cannot access the high-speed internet (min 30Mbps) that others rely on for simultaneous virtual communications at work, or for school.
OneWeb is not alone in driving this great connectivity roll-out. As a wholesale business, we are working with governments and distributors to provide new access to enterprise-grade broadband connectivity everywhere. We want SMEs, which account for half of global employment, as well as local communities to digitise, so the next generation is better connected than the last, with greater opportunities to succeed.
Together with our distribution partners, OneWeb exists to deliver the connectivity that drives positive change at scale, for greater inclusion, quality of life, and prosperity everywhere.
OneWeb welcomes engineering, science, and creative talent, research professionals, and subject matter experts from around the world to redefine existing mindsets in the space industry, drive innovation, and build business partnership opportunities in new ways all across areas, from design, engineering, and production, to space flight management, and satellite end of life removal.
