So…I’m totally hooked on Particle, but need a more affordable data plan. Consequently, when I bumped into AT&T’s IoT Platform which appears to offer a $2/SIM with 1GB shared data for $25 (can be used over 12 months), it piqued my interest. They also offer 3GB for $60 and 5GB for $100. I need something like 15MB/month/device and I have a number of devices. On the surface the AT&T offering looks like a better fit for my needs.
I’m trying to get confirmation from them that the Electron (SARA-U260) is an approved device on their network.
We’d like to push data 1/minute, but the cost of the Particle data plan has us pushing once per five minutes.
Has anyone else looked at this offering and are there any caveats? I do realize I’d be giving up the singular console for total fleet management.
I certainly understand if Particle removes this topic from the board as it would appear to run contrary to their business model.
