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|
|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.
