What are data speeds possible on melita.io SIM cards?

As with all data speeds on  in mobile technology, this varies based on multiple factors such as distance from cell sites, how busy that cell site is at that current time and climate conditions amongst others. The maximum throughputs for download speed and upload speeds provisioned for on melita.io SIMs are defined in the table below

Service type Max Throughput DL Max Throughput UL
NB-IoT 20kbps 20kbps
3G Low (Telemetry) 128 kbps 64 kbps
3G High 10 Mbps 2 Mbps
LTE Low (Telemetry) 128 kbps 64 kbps
LTE High 20 Mbps 10 Mbps

The throughput alone is only one factor when considering which technology to use. If you have existing equipment such as sensors and modules you should first check what connectivity options are applicable to your device. Whilst standard 3G and LTE may offer high speeds, NB-IoT modules offer lower power consumption and longer battery life. The technology to be used depends on the specific use case you’re addressing.
