IoT coverage map details

Coverage depends on where you are and what device you are using. For example, to get access to the NB-IoT network, you need to be in a NB-IoT coverage area and have a NB-IoT capable device.
Please note: The above map is indicative only and intended to provide general guidance on where our network coverage is available. Coverage may vary depending on the type of device used.
