Previously, French company Arianespace said that at least eight launches with OneWeb’s satellite would be done at Baikonur in 2020, and two launches should be done from the Guiana Space Centre in Kourou.

OneWeb is building the world’s largest and highest throughput satellite system to connect everyone, everywhere – by land, air, sea to bridge digital divide once and for all.
