OneWeb, a UK startup, has confirmed funding to create a global high-speed broadband network. The start-up plans to launch 30 satellites a month, beginning in 2021. This will ultimately create a constellation made up of 650 satellites, providing internet access to all.

Connected Earth

OneWeb’s mission is to connect all schools without internet, and provide affordable access to the 4 billion unconnected people around the world.
