T-Mobile has launched its NB-IoT network across the United States. 

The operator claims that it is the first in the world to launch NB-IoT in the guard bands for optimal efficiency. It enables T-Mobile to utilize precious spectrum resources most efficiently, and IoT applications don’t have to compete with other data traffic for network resources. 

Built on the 3GPP standard, NB-IoT is a low power, wide area network (LPWAN) LTE-Advanced technology that provides a pathway to 5G IoT and offers many comparable benefits like low power usage, long battery life and low device cost.

T-Mobile also announced its new partner program, T-Mobile CONNECT, to help IoT solution providers collaborate and bring their products and services to market on T-Mobile’s network -- and into the hands of customers -- more quickly.

Neville Ray, CTO, T-Mobile
We’re always innovating to bring customers the latest technology, and NB-IoT is the globally-preferred standard to power the rapidly expanding world of IoT applications. So of course, T-Mobile is the first to bring NB-IoT to the U.S., lighting up new capabilities to connect massive numbers of devices at low cost.
