OneWeb plans to offer broadband services in India by June 2022: Sunil Mittal
"We will start to work with ISRO, other government agencies, start to show through the concept, the power of this satellite constellation in terms of low latency, high speed and high bandwidth," Mittal said.
"We will start to test OneWeb services (in India), sometime in 6-8 months but these services will not be 24/7. Every day, you will have a few hours of service because the satellite revolves around the whole globe," Mittal said.
Bharti Enterprises chairman Sunil Mittal, who took over as executive chairman of OneWeb, said the satellite firm plans to offer broadband services in India by May/June 2022, and is currently in talks with the Indian Space Research Organisation and other authorities. Mittal told ET’s Romit Guha that OneWeb's broadband services will not conflict with Bharti Airtel's mobile services as it will serve areas such as deserts and mountainous regions,
