Buying Additional Data

The 500 MB data volume and 250 SMS included in the 1NCE IoT Lifetime Flat are sufficient for the majority of IoT use cases. However, if you are concerned that you may use up the data volume or SMS before the end of your 10-year term, you have the opportunity to top up your data. For 10 Dollars, you can receive another 500 MB of data and an additional 250 SMS.

In this way, you ensure that your IoT devices remain connected during the entire operating period. The activation period of your 1NCE IoT SIM card of 10 years remains unaffected. You can find the Top-Up function in our customer portal where you can carry out the top-up process easily and independently.

What is an IoT SIM card?

An IoT SIM, or Internet of Things SIM, is a specialized subscriber identity module designed for IoT devices. It enables these devices to connect to cellular networks and transmit data over the internet. IoT SIMs are optimized for low-power consumption, small data packets, and often operate on dedicated IoT networks. Learn more about choosing the right IoT SIM card

How much does an IoT SIM card cost?

The cost of an IoT SIM card can vary depending on several factors, including the data plan you choose, the length of your commitment, and the specific provider. Some providers offer options with a fixed monthly fee that includes the SIM card and a data allowance. Others might have a one-time cost for the SIM card itself, with data billed separately. 1NCE offers Lifetime Flat subscription which means, an IoT SIM Plan includes device lifetime. It's best to check with different providers to find a plan that meets your needs and budget. 

What is an IoT plan?

An IoT plan is a data plan designed specifically for IoT devices. These plans typically offer smaller data allowances compared to phone plans, as IoT devices usually transmit smaller amounts of data like sensor readings or status updates. They might also come with features like remote SIM management or multi-network connectivity, depending on the provider. 

What's the difference between IoT and eSIM?

An IoT SIM can come in different formats like for example any phone card SIM. An eSIM (embedded SIM) is a form factor or format of an IoT SIM (MFF2), a tiny chip already soldered onto the device itself. Both achieve the same goal of providing cellular network connectivity, but eSIM offers a smaller form factor and easier device management. However, eSIM availability might be limited depending on the device model.
