US Cellular launches LTE-M network optimised for IoT

Monday 10 February 2020 | 15:44 CET | News
US Cellular launched its LTE-M network on more than 90 percent of its cell sites nationwide, with plans to have 100 percent covered in the second quarter of 2020. US Cellular said its LTE-M network is suited for IoT products such as fleet and asset management, tank monitoring, smart meters and other applications because of its low power wide area technology (LPWAN) that provides extended coverage at a lower cost. Low power or battery-limited LTE-M devices can be less complex, lower cost and built for mass adoption of IoT applications and deployment.
