BT launches nationwide IoT roaming

BT has announced the launch of its Internet of Things (IoT) National Roaming SIMs across the UK in a move it claims will allow businesses “to keep smart devices connected wherever they are”.

IoT national roaming SIMs allow smart devices to connect to mobile networks ensuring they stay connected while on the move or in remote locations.

BT claimed its IoT national roaming SIMs will offer businesses the “largest and most reliable” network connection as it is connected on BT-owned EE with neutral hosting meaning the SIM can connect to multiple other major UK networks.

It is expected the new SIM will especially benefit the transport and courier sectors with drivers and delivery workers able to access data including fuel efficiency, changes to a delivery schedule and cold chain management so temperatures can be constantly monitored on a refrigerated vehicle wherever they are on their journey.

Marc Overton, managing director of BT’s Division X, said: “Businesses across the UK are increasingly understanding the benefits of using IoT devices in running their operations. And now, with the unveiling of our IoT national roaming SIMs, we’re making sure those connections stay strong no matter where business takes you.
