The satellites were initially meant to launch on a Russian Soyuz rocket on March 5, but space agency Roscosmos removed the satellites after OneWeb, a private company, refused to sever links with the UK government.
Now, OneWeb has managed to secure a launch with its competitor – Elon Musk’s SpaceX.
Both companies are trying to build a constellation of satellites that provides global internet connectivity.
“We thank SpaceX for their support, which reflects our shared vision for the boundless potential of space,” said Neil Masterson, chief executive of OneWeb.
“With these launch plans in place, we’re on track to finish building out our full fleet of satellites and deliver robust, fast, secure connectivity around the globe.”
The first launch with SpaceX is expected in 2022, helping add to OneWeb’s total in-orbit constellation, which currently stands at 428 satellites.
OneWeb’s network aims to deliver high-speed and low-latency global connectivity.
