Orange and OneWeb fill in not-spots

OneWeb, the low earth orbit (LEO) satellite communications company, and Orange have signed a distribution agreement to expand connectivity services across Europe, Africa, Latin America and other regions.

Orange will offer OneWeb’s LEO technology to enterprise customers and telco operators, complementing existing services and enabling connections in hard-to-reach areas.

Neil Masterson, OneWeb chief executive officer, said: “This partnership will help bridge digital divides, and will ensure access to efficient, high-quality and reliable broadband internet is available to customers in locations across the world.”

Jean-Louis Le Roux, executive vice president of Orange international network infrastructure and services, added: “We believe satellite is a promising and complementary technology showcasing many recent innovations, that will benefit enterprises around the word and which will accelerate the digital inclusion of populations.”
