Deutsche Telekom and 1NCE have teamed up to offer a low-cost IoT tariff for enterprises as they bid to accelerate growth in the connected devices market.

The deal costs a one-off fee of €10 per SIM and includes 500MB of data for the service life of each device, which has been pegged at 10 years.

The two companies said it was suited to devices that transmit small amounts of data at irregular intervals, such as smart water meters or smoke detectors.

These will be powered using the Germany-based operator's NB-IoT network, which debuted in 2016 and is now live in eight European markets.

Deutsche Telekom is an investor in 1NCE, which describes itself as a multinational IoT MNVO.

Alexander P. Sator, Founder and CEO of 1NCE, said: “With this tariff, we will make it as easy as possible for our customers to quickly implement new IoT solutions.

"That means no monthly bills, no additional fees, no tariff jungle."

Hagen Rickmann, Managing Director, Business Customers, Deutsche Telekom, added: “Deutsche Telekom's own service-based NB-IoT offering is optimally complemented by 1NCE's simple, disruptive business model.

"Together, we are addressing a larger market and creating the best customer experience."

The deal was announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where Deutsche Telekom also launched a smart city offering.
