AT&T and Vodafone Business Offer NB-IoT Network Roaming across the United States and Europe


On October 23, 2019, AT&T and Vodafone jointly announced the first inter-carrier roaming for Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT). Enterprise customers of AT&T and Vodafone will be able to seamlessly roam on their respective NB-IoT networks in the United States, Spain, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands by the end of 2019. The NB-IoT roaming announcement follows up on AT&T’s earlier announcement about LTE-M roaming service in North America (including Mexico) and parts of Europe through its partnership with KPN, Orange, Vodafone, and Swisscom and Canadian operators Bell, Rogers Communications, and Telus. It is also worth noting that, on August 21, 2019, Deutsche Telekom also announced roaming on the NB-IoT networks, but this was limited to its own national subsidiaries in Austria, the Netherlands, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Greece.

Roaming on NB-IoT Networks Will Initially Be Limited to Enterprise Customers
