AT&T Enters Agreement With OneWeb To Deliver Broadband Connectivity Via Satellite

AT&T (T) announced it has signed a strategic agreement with OneWeb to deliver high-speed broadband connectivity via satellite in hard-to-serve areas. OneWeb is a global communications network powered from space, headquartered in London. The AT&T service will be supported by OneWeb's network of satellites. AT&T business and government customers in Alaska and northern U.S. states will be covered later in the current year.

OneWeb is implementing a constellation of Low Earth Orbit satellites with a network of global gateway stations and a range of user terminals to provide high-bandwidth and low-latency communications service. It has launched 288 satellites and expects to attain global coverage with a total fleet of 648 satellites by the end of 2022.

AT&T will use this technology to enhance connectivity when connecting to enterprise, small and medium-sized business and government customers as well as hard-to-reach cell towers. It will complement existing AT&T access technologies.
