OneWeb, a satellite company partly controlled by the U.K. government, has announced a new partnership with SpaceX after being banned from using Russian rockets following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Under the new deal, SpaceX will launch an unspecified number of OneWeb satellites later this year, adding to its growing constellation of 428 of the planned total of 648 low-Earth orbit satellites. OneWeb’s program, similar to SpaceX’s Starlink initiative, aims to create a mega-constellation of thousands of satellites to provide broadband internet coverage to customers around the world.
