Eutelsat OneWeb is launching a Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) mobility service to provide high-speed connectivity on the move for land-based customers. 

Eutelsat OneWeb’s land mobility service will provide comms on-the-move solutions for distribution partners and customers. The company said this new service will create new revenue opportunities for rail connectivity, emergency responders, media, oil and gas industries, mining, government and NGO customers. 

The service is available through over 30 of Eutelsat OneWeb’s existing distribution partners and leverages Kymeta Hawk u8 flat panel user terminal enabled for mobility. Kymeta and OneWeb have had an ongoing partnership to bring the u8 antenna to OneWeb customers.

Customers across North and South America, Europe and Australia will have access to download speeds of up to 200 Mbps while traveling, or mobile at work. Eutelsat Group plans to extend this coverage with the completion of its ground segment to enable full global coverage.

This LEO mobility service has been developed and tested alongside industry partners including the European Space Agency and the UK Space Agency. Eutelsat OneWeb will be offering mobile and portable connectivity across the network to both existing and potential partners. 

“The launch of Eutelsat OneWeb’s land mobility services brings high-speed, low-latency connectivity to under-served industries such as transport, first responders and the international aid sector. We are looking forward to meeting the huge demand for connectivity on the move services by working closely with our trusted distribution and technology partners,” said Stephen Beynon, co-president of Connectivity at Eutelsat Group.
