Cellular connectivity service innovator 1NCE has extended its service and support to telematics service providers to give coverage in more than 100 countries across all continents under a single flat rate per connected device of €10 – a one-off, up-front IoT connectivity fee for life (10 years).
The 1NCE IoT Flat Rate service provides continuous connectivity for €10 for 10 years, 500MB of data and 250 SMS messages. The 500MB data allowance can be topped up at any time for just an additional €10. The 1NCE service connects devices over 2G, 3G, 4G and NB-IoT networks provided by Tier One carriers such as Deutsche Telekom and its roaming partners as well as China Telecom Global.
By using the IoT Flat Rate service, telematics service companies can reduce the total cost of their product. That is because the service eliminates the need to manage complex tariffs, to administer recurring payments for subscription services, or to manage different services from different network providers in different countries.
Instead, the 1NCE service just requires a single up-front payment of €10 per connected device for global connectivity with no roaming or other additional charges. By paying a single, low up-front fee for global connectivity, telematics device manufacturers can price and configure their service to customers globally with total confidence.
