“T-Mobile has set their sites on Verizon LTE with the launch of their new narrowband IoT connectivity plan, NB-IOT. ”
T-Mobile US has launched a $6-per-year, per-device narrowband internet of things plan for IoT connectivity, seeking to undercut LTE-M-based price plans from other carriers.
T-Mobile US in particular singled out Verizon as a competition target, contrasting its new $6 per year, per-device NB-IoT plan with Verizon’s IoT plans for Category 1 or M1 LTE. Those run $2 a month per device for 200 KB of data or $3 per month per device for 500 KB of data. The limited-time plan from T-Mobile US includes 10 single-packet transactions per hour at up to 64 Kbps, up to 12 MB. It does not include roaming.
