1NCE to extend global connectivity offering to China

Alexander Sator of 1NCE

1NCE, the provider of the world’s first IoT flat rate (powered by Deutsche Telekom), announced plans to expand the global footprint of its IoT connectivity solution. As of now, customers will be able to use temporary 2G/3G roaming (for non-permanent applications) in China. The recent deployment is part of the company’s global growth strategy.

“We are continuing our growth path by expanding our global network coverage at a steady and fast pace” said Alexander Sator, founder and CEO of 1NCE. “By providing temporary roaming in China we search to satisfy the connectivity needs of our European customer base.”

Only in September, the company had announced the expansion of its offering to Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. Besides these regions, 1NCE already offers seamless connectivity all over Europe (EU 28+2) and the USA (USA also for non-permanent applications). The portfolio consists of different bearer technologies, especially multimode NB-IoT, 2G and 3G.

Fast growing market

China is one of the fastest growing markets for IoT applications in the world. The analyst firm MarketsandMarkets estimates that the value of the Chinese IoT market will be US$121 billion (€106 billion) by 2022.

“For many of our customers, the Chinese market is an important region to address, for example within the scope of logistics or industrial use cases that require temporary connectivity in China,” said Kim Juchem, COO of 1NCE. “We are, therefore, extremely pleased that they can also benefit from the advantages of the 1NCE Lifetime Fee in this new region”.

A new global standard in IoT connectivity

With the 1NCE Lifetime Fee, 1NCE offers the world’s first flat rate solution for the Internet of Things: For a one-time fee of 10 euros, customers receive a data volume of 500 MB as well as 250 SMS messages, which they can use over the entire lifetime of the device. As a strategic partner of Deutsche Telekom, 1NCE guarantees highest connection security and best network coverage in a constantly increasing number of geographies all over the world.

“The recent deployment underlines our commitment to create a new global standard for IoT connectivity. Together with our partner Deutsche Telekom we want to be able to offer a truly global IoT connectivity solution by 2019,” said Alexander Sator. “Expanding our network coverage to China, marks an important milestone on this path.”
