NEOM TONOMUS-OneWeb JV to build satellite station in Saudi Arabia


The joint venture between OneWeb and TONOMUS, known as First Tech Web Company, and responsible for advancing cognitive technologies within the NEOM ecosystem, has chosen Albabtain LeBlanc, a Saudi Arabian construction firm, to build a satellite station located in Tabuk, Saudi Arabia.

According to the statement, this station will be part of the ground infrastructure of the joint venture, supporting the mission of bridging the digital divide across Saudi Arabia and the broader MENA region by providing access to high-speed, low-latency internet connectivity to people and businesses in remote and underserved areas.

The satellite station is expected to be completed by the end of 2023, as Albabtain LeBlanc joins OneWeb’s roster of partners across the Middle East, Europe, Africa, and Alaska.
