T-Mobile announces launch of NB-IoT offering for $6/year for up to 12 MB per connected device, says it's roughly one-tenth the cost of Verizon's Cat-M plans


Look out carriers: here comes Magenta, connecting all the things. T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced the nation’s first plan for narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) for just $6 per year. At one tenth the cost of Verizon’s Cat-M plans. T-Mobile’s new NB-IoT plan takes advantage of narrowband technology, and the efficiency it provides, to significantly lower the costs of connecting things and unleash the next wave of IoT innovation.

The Un-carrier was the first wireless company in North America to launch NB-IoT last October and plans to launch the technology nationwide by mid-year. T-Mobile also announced that the company has certified new NB-IoT modules from u-blox and Sierra Wireless for use on its network.

“The number of connected devices already outnumbers the worldwide population, and it’s only getting bigger. So, of course, T-Mobile is taking advantage of the latest IoT tech to make it simpler – and massively more affordable – for businesses and cities to connect things,” said Mike Sievert, Chief Operating Officer for T-Mobile. “Launching Narrowband IoT is a giant step toward 5G IoT, and naturally, T-Mobile is leading the way!”

Built on the 3GPP standard, NB-IoT is an LTE-Advanced technology. NB-IoT provides a pathway to 5G IoT and offers many comparable benefits like low power usage, long battery life and support for more connections per cell site. With NB-IoT, T-Mobile is laying the foundation for the future and giving customers peace of mind that their solutions are future proof.
