Amazon’s Project Kuiper satellites will hitch a ride to space on a different rocket.

The company will launch two of its internet satellites into space aboard Boeing’s Atlas V rocket instead of the United Launch Alliance’s Vulcan rocket as previously planned, Reuters reports.

Amazon is making the change because it wants its satellites in space sooner. While technical issues delayed the Vulcan’s launch until later this year, putting the satellites on the Atlas V pushes up the expected launch date to September 26th.
