The production of Soyuz rockets and upper stages Fregat to launch OneWeb satellites will be completed by the end of the year, said in an interview with RIA Novosti General Director of "Glavkosmos" (enterprise "Roscosmos") Dmitry Loskutov.
In June 2015, a contract was signed between the companies Arianespace and OneWeb 21 start-up of carrier rockets "Soyuz" with the upper stage block "Frigate" to launch into space 672 OneWeb satellites. From Baikonur planned nine launches (two already completed), with the East six, with Kuru - six (one already done). OneWeb is planning to create a constellation of satellites which will provide broadband Internet access for users around the world due to the complete coverage of the Earth's surface. At the end of March the company filed for bankruptcy in the court of the U.S. state of new York.
