But half the world has no way to connect. OneWeb is on a mission to bridge the digital divide by 2027.

Following routine checks for the upcoming OneWeb launch, Arianespace informed us of technical issue on the Fregat upper stage of the Soyuz launcher. The Fregat stage has been placed in safe configuration, enabling Arianespace to conduct additional testing.
OneWeb’s technical team is working closely with Arianespace to evaluate any potential impact on the OneWeb launch. Such events are not uncommon in the launch industry. OneWeb and Arianespace, with their Russian partners, remain focused on launch success and launch preparation activities. We continue to work together to prepare the launch vehicle and OneWeb’s satellites for launch.
