OneWeb

OneWeb, formerly known as WorldVu Satellites, is a global communications company, on a mission to bridge the digital divide. Through a global constellation of satellites, OneWeb will provide high-speed, affordable broadband to the world.

OneWeb deploys a micro-satellite constellation to provide global high-speed, low latency broadband access.

OneWeb was founded in 2012 under the name WorldVu, by Greg Wyler. The company is based in Arlington, Virginia and plans to launch the OneWeb satellite constellation, a network of 648 Low Earth orbit microsatellites, starting in late 2017.

OneWeb is launching a global constellation of satellites in low Earth orbit, which will allow us to provide high-speed, low latency service to the world. Small, low-cost and easy-to-install user terminals will talk to the satellites in our constellation and emit LTE, 3G and WiFi and 5G to the surrounding areas.

OneWeb’s constellation of satellites will logically interlock with each other to create a coverage footprint over the entire planet. 

 

Airbus Defence and Space and OneWeb Satellites have teamed up to close the technological gap between the developed and developing worlds. It is building the first 900 satellites of its constellation through a joint venture with Airbus called OneWeb Satellites.OneWeb is building the first 900 satellites of its constellation through a joint venture with Airbus called OneWeb Satellites.
