The Indian Space Agency successfully launched 36 satellites for OneWeb on October 23rd. This follow-on batch will launch in January, according to the Press Trust of India (PTI), who did not give a precise launch date.

The January launch will be the 15th batch for OneWeb and take the total number of satellites in orbit to 498 out of its planned total of 648.
