IoT Network rollout

Recommended Posts

Hi,

After today's webinar by Geoff Sizer "How the Internet of Things will affect every engineer", one of the questions by an attendee prompted me to look into what is happening around the world with regards to the rollout of networks and the support for the 50 billions of IoT devices to be connected by 2020. ref: http://www.statista.com/statistics/471264/iot-number-of-connected-devices-worldwide/

So I've started this thread to provide a central spot for this community to share or add links to news about the rollout of IoT networks around the world.

So please feel free to add and grow the following list:

South Korean telco SK Telecom recently claimed it was rolling out the world's first nationwide Internet of Things (IoT) network, but it looks like the Netherlands has beaten it to the punch.
