OneWeb is launching a global 2.5 gigabit per second satellite internet service by 2021.

OneWeb received permission from the FCC in June to deploy a global network of 720 low-Earth orbit satellites using the Ka (20/30 GHz) and Ku (11/14 GHz) frequency bands. Earlier in 2017, OneWeb started building a satellite manufacturing factory which will be capable of producing 15 satellites per week.

Small, low-cost user terminals will talk to the satellites in the sky, and emit LTE, 3G and WiFi to the surrounding areas, providing high-speed access for everyone.
