NEOM and the OneWeb project provide digital transformation in areas remote

NEOM Digital Technology Holding Company signed a joint agreement venture with OneWeb (the global communications network operating in space) worth $ 200 million to provide a high-speed satellite communications network to NEOM and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as the countries of the Middle East and other neighboring countries East Africa.

One of the best things when you think of NEOM, as human progress in acceleration, is that it’s a project for everyone, so you want to make sure there are no digital gaps and that there are no areas with fast and effective connectivity and other areas that lack that connectivity, Bradley said.

He believes that the biggest problem lies in the fact that access to Internet services via the network in optical fiber is almost impossible in some areas of the project, can take a long time and is very expensive, so the agreement with OneWeb comes to employ low-orbit satellites to provide a fast and effective connection and to make it available in the areas remote of the earth in NEOM.

Therefore, Bradley believes there is no need to tunnel to provide connectivity, as it doesn’t matter where you are in NEOM, you can benefit from the project’s advanced digital cognitive systems.
