SIGFOX has partnered with Connected Finland to extend its global Internet-of-Things(IoT) network throughout Finland by 2017. The fast rollout, which makes Finland the 19th country worldwide to have SIGFOX’s dedicated IoT network, will provide coverage to the nation’s largest cities by this summer and coverage for 85 percent of the population by spring 2017.

Registering more than 7 million devices in its network with a footprint on all continents, SIGFOX said that it is rapidly establishing one global, seamless network that provides simple, ubiquitous, energy-efficient connectivity for billions of connected devices that will make the vast majority of the IoT. In the past 12 months only, SIGFOX has added 14 countries to its global coverage map.

As a SIGFOX Network Operator, Connected Finland is backed by well-known industrial investors and a group of private angel investors committed to quickly adding Finland to the world’s fastest-emerging mass market IoT network. Connected Finland’s founders Markku Patronen, Marko Vanninen and Tom Lindblad have extensive operator background.
