One step closer to launching OneWeb

Thrilled that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has granted OneWeb approval for US market access to launch our network of internet-beaming satellites into orbit.

The FCC commissioners voted unanimously in our favour, making OneWeb the first satellite constellation of its kind to receive approval from the full commission.

We all need internet access, but half the world has no way to connect. OneWeb’s vision is to make affordable access available for everyone, by launching a constellation of 720 low-Earth orbit satellites.
