Developers can now purchase data to get their connected solutions to market quickly
AT&T* is introducing data plans for developers and businesses to wirelessly connect their Internet of Things (IoT) projects. With these data plans, developers can purchase a bucket of prepaid data to power up to a thousand devices on the AT&T network. Available later this month, the IoT data plans give developers a flexible and fast way to deploy their devices and an entry point into deploying IoT solutions. As a customer’s connectivity needs grow, AT&T will work directly with the customer on different options.
AT&T has three IoT data plans for customers choose from:
- Option 1: 1 GB for $25.00 (valid up to 12 months)1 ; includes 500 SMS
- Option 2: 3 GB for $60.00 (valid up to 12 months)2 ; includes 1000 SMS
- Option 3: 5 GB for $100.00 (valid up to 24 months)3 includes 1500 SMS
“Making data plans available for developers and innovators lowers the barrier to entry. It lets smaller players, used to working at the speed of innovation, get their products off the ground and in the hands of customers quickly,” said Chris Penrose, senior vice president, IoT Solutions, AT&T. “After these initial plans are deployed, we help them scale their solution beyond a thousand SIMs and provide connectivity as they grow their business.”
In July 2016, AT&T started selling an all-in-one IoT Starter Kit to help developers jumpstart their IoT projects. With LTE hardware, platforms, cloud storage and more in one place, the starter kit gives developers all the tools they need to build connectivity into their solutions.
The IoT Starter Kit is available from AT&T or Avnet for only $99 plus applicable taxes and fees beginning August 2016. For more information on our IoT tools for developers, visit www.att.com/iot.
