OneWeb Launches 36 Satellites Into Orbit to Deliver Global High-Speed Internet Access
Britain-based technology company OneWeb has launched 36 communications satellites into space from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, a live broadcast showed on Monday.

OneWeb launches satellites into orbit as part of its plans to provide a global high-speed Internet service.

"Launch #12 is the latest in a series of eight launches scheduled for 2021 by OneWeb with launch partner Arianespace," the company said on its website.

The live broadcast of the launch was broadcast by OneWeb, Arianespace, the French International Launch Services, and the Russian space agency Roscosmos.

Earlier this year, OneWeb said a launch from the Russian Far East would allow it to provide connectivity everywhere north of 50 degrees latitude.

OneWeb has listed the United Kingdom, Alaska, Northern Europe, Greenland, Iceland and all US states located within the territory of the North American continent, the Arctic Ocean and Canada as areas in which it is expected to provide full telecom service.

Interfax news agency said the satellites, which were launched on board a Soyuz-2.1b rocket, will be separated in stages.

OneWeb resumed satellite launches in December after emerging from bankruptcy protection with a $1 billion investment from a consortium of the British government and India's Bharti Enterprises.

The company also obtained financing from the Indian company, Eutelsat Telecom and SoftBank of Japan. OneWeb received a total of $2.4 billion in funding.
