3G connectivity is known as a bridge technology between the mobile radio standards 2G and 4G/LTE. Compared to 2G, 3G offers greater bandwidth and thus faster data transmission. 3G plays a minor role when it comes to the connection of devices on the Internet of Things. Meanwhile, new radio standards like LTE-M and NB-IoT have become established that are specifically tailored to the needs of IoT use cases. No matter whether you are planning with 3G, LTE-M or NB-IoT, the 1NCE IoT SIM card supports all cellular mobile radio standards.
