Ten euros for ten years – Europe’s first data flat rate for the Internet of Things by Deutsche Telekom and 1NCE

  • New pricing model reduces costs for network services on the Internet of Things
  • One-off payment over the entire lifetime of the smart devices
  • Mobile World Congress: Deutsche Telekom and 1NCE present the first data flat rate for the IoT

Deutsche Telekom and 1NCE offer the first pan-European data flat rate for smart devices in the IoT. Customers pay a one-time fee of ten euros and receive a data flat rate of up to 500 MB for the service life of the smart device of ten years.

At Mobile World Congress, Deutsche Telekom and the Cologne-based mobile communications provider 1NCE will be presenting Europe’s first data flat rate for smart devices on the Internet of Things. Customers pay a ‘lifetime fee” of ten euros in the prepaid tariff and receive a data flat rate of up to 500 megabytes for the service life of each smart device of ten years. In this way, costs can be better calculated because customers will no longer have to pay monthly, changing amounts depending on the volume of data consumed. The offer is initially valid within the European Union as well as in Switzerland and Norway.

1NCE, in which Deutsche Telekom is also financially involved, networks machines and devices on the Internet of Things (IoT) that transmit only small amounts of data at irregular intervals – such as smart water meters or smoke detectors. Deutsche Telekom provides 1NCE capacities from its machine network as part of 5G.

Single payment instead of tariff jungle

With this tariff, we will make it as easy as possible for our customers to quickly implement new IoT solutions. That means no monthly bills, no additional fees, no tariff jungle“, says Alexander P. Sator, founder and CEO of 1NCE. “Deutsche Telekom, as a pioneer in NB-IoT, is effectively pushing ahead with the expansion of the network. We hope that this close co-operation will accelerate growth in the European IoT market”, says Sator.

Both companies want to make the use of IoT solutions as cost-effective as possible for customers and use Deutsche Telekom’s NarrowBand IoT technology (NB-IoT) for this purpose. NB-IoT achieves long ranges, consumes hardly any energy, costs little and is aimed in particular at customers from the energy sector, the transport and logistics sector and the public sector with their Smart Cities.

Deutsche Telekom’s own service-based NB-IoT offering is optimally complemented by 1NCE’s simple, disruptive business model. Together, we are addressing a larger market and creating the best customer experience,” says Hagen Rickmann, Managing Director Business Customers at Deutsche Telekom.
