Eutelsat Group & Intelsat ink significant new deal for partnership on Eutelsat’s OneWeb LEO Constellation


Eutelsat Group announces that it has signed a major new multi-year, multimillion-dollar agreement partnering with Intelsat on its OneWeb Low Earth Orbit Constellation.


Commencing in mid-2024, the deal is valued at up to $500 million over seven years, with a firm commitment of $250m, including the $45m deal signed in March 2023, with options of a further $250 million by the end of the period. It will enable Intelsat to combine OneWeb’s LEO Network with its GEO and terrestrial networks to deliver comprehensive customer solutions supporting networks, government, and mobility sectors.
