OneWeb confirms successful launch of 34 Satellites

OneWeb has confirmed its successful launch of 34 satellites by Arianespace from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, bringing OneWeb’s total in-orbit constellation to 322 satellites.

Liftoff occurred on 14 September at 7:07pm BST. OneWeb’s satellites separated from the rocket and were dispensed in nine batches after 3 hours 45 minutes into the flight, with signal acquisition on all 34 satellites confirmed. With this launch, Arianespace also celebrates passing the mark of 1,000 satellites successfully launched to space.

OneWeb remains on track to start service this year at the 50th parallel and above with its constellation and to deliver global service in 2022. The company continues to see growing demand from telecommunications providers, ISPs, and governments worldwide to offer its low-latency, high-speed connectivity services to the hardest to reach places. OneWeb has raised USD 2.7 billion since November 2020, with no debt issuance.

Neil Masterson, OneWeb CEO, commented: “The team continues to stay focused on execution and delivering our network. I am enormously grateful to the team and all our partners who are making these milestones possible. We continue to see a huge and growing demand for our services from global customers, and we are incredibly excited about both introducing commercial service and scaling our global network.”
