OneWeb to Bring Connectivity to Uzbekistan Under MoU
OneWeb plans to bring its high-speed, low-latency broadband satellite connectivity across the Republic of Uzbekistan. The company announced May 17 that it had signed an MoU with Uzbekspace, the Agency of Space Research and Technology under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
The MoU paves a path for close collaboration between OneWeb and Uzbekspace in relation to market access, potential distribution of OneWeb’s satellite capacity in the country, and coordination with other state agencies, public and private sector enterprises. Uzbekistan has a population of roughly 34 million people.
“The signing of the MoU with OneWeb is a significant event in the development of space communications in Uzbekistan, and the availability of OneWeb telecommunications services in the republic would allow effective implementation of the tasks provided for by the state programs for the development of information technologies and ensure the availability of innovative communication services even in remote regions of the country,” Shukhrat Kadirov, acting director general of Uzbekspace, said in a statement.
