Definition: OneWeb


A satellite system from OneWeb Satellites (www.oneweb.world) that plans to offer affordable Internet service worldwide by 2027. Using spectrum that Teledesic relinquished when its very similar "Internet in the Sky" project failed to launch, OneWeb is expected to offer its first customers service in 2019. OneWeb plans to launch 900 LEO satellites that will route Internet to small user terminals in any location or moving vehicle. The terminal will transmit Wi-Fi and cellular signals to anyone's computer or mobile device. See Teledesic and LEO.
