Goodbye Galileo! EU's satellite rival set to launch from Russia today – watch LIVE here

Arianespace said of today’s launch: “OneWeb’s mission is to bring internet everywhere to everyone, by creating a global connectivity platform through a next-generation satellite constellation in low Earth orbit.

“OneWeb’s constellation of 650 satellites will deliver high-speed, low-latency enterprise-grade connectivity services to a wide range of customer sectors including enterprise, government, maritime and aviation customers.

“Central to its purpose, OneWeb seeks to bring connectivity to every unconnected area where fibre cannot reach, and thereby bridge the digital divide.”

Starting in 2021, OneWeb aims to launch its service in the UK, Alaska, Canada as well as Northern Europe, Greenland and Iceland.
