Internet of Things: One year of free connectivity with SIM cards from 1NCE


The German IoT provider 1NCE is expanding its portfolio with a SIM card for cloud-based IoT projects that offers one year of free connectivity. With the offer, the company wants to lower the entry barriers for IoT projects, announced 1NCE. The free “1NCE For All” tariff is available exclusively in Amazon’s AWS Marketplace. When booking one or more cards, developers receive twelve months of mobile connectivity free of charge, with no risk or further contractual obligations, the provider promises.

The free IoT SIM card is valid for twelve months and offers a data volume of 50 MB. Each customer can order up to 100 cards. The cards expire after one year and are not renewed automatically. Users can then get into the for $ 10 per card regular flat rate from 1NCE switch, which offers ten years of connectivity with 500 MByte data volume and 250 SMS. The devices networked with the SIM cards are developed, activated and operated using the IoT Connectivity Suite for AWS, which 1NCE presented in the summer.

By working with network operators all over the world, 1NCE offers a cellular connection for IoT devices with 2G, 3G, LTE, LTE-M and NB IoT at no additional cost for roaming. In this country, the cards also work in the network of Deutsche Telekom, which is involved in 1NCE. The provider claims that it operates more than five million active SIM cards for over 3500 customers. 1NCE has been offering its IoT Flat Rate in the AWS Marketplace since April.

“We are excited to work with 1NCE. This is how we support our customers and enable them to realize the full potential of their IoT solutions on AWS,” said Dirk Didascalou, AWS Vice President IoT. “Our goal has always been to take the complexity out of IoT projects,” adds 1NCE founder and CEO Alexander Sator. “With our one-off tariff, calculating operating costs (TCO) has never been easier. By working with AWS, we’re taking this simplicity to the next level.”
