What are the roaming partners (PLMN ID & band) for IoT Easy Connect in Italy?
I am currently using a NB IoT Easy Connect SIM card from T Mobile NL, see link.
In the Netherlands this has been working fine, however now I am in Italy (sicily to be precise) and I can’t seem to connect to the internet.
Maybe I have the wrong roaming partner (PLMN ID & band) selected? I encountered the following resources on the internet to find out more about that:
This seems to be the official coverage map for T Mobile for roaming partners in the EU. However it is incomplete, because it only shows coverage for NL.
This is an overview from IoT creators showing roaming partners for Italy, but I am thinking that might not be applicable for my Easy Connect SIM card because the webpage says it’s for Global SIM 90140 (even though IoT creators is part of Deutsche Telekom).
So my question is: is the IoT creators overview applicable for my Easy Connect SIM card? Or is there another overview somewhere that I should be using and not aware of?
Any help is much appreciated!
the IoT creators overview is unfortunately NOT applicable for the T-Mobile NL Easy Connect SIM card.
You can order a free “Starterkit” SIM on iotcreators.com to get connectivity in all the countries you found on our roaming page in the docs.
I looked at the T-Mobile NL Easy Connect product spec and I think the correct one is this here, the LPWA version (low power wide area) TechnischeGegevens-LOW-POWER-IoT-EasyConnect.pdf
I assume you ordered the LPWA SIM, because with the other you’ll only get 2G/3G/4G/LTE-M.
There they write about NB-IoT roaming: “NB-IoT Niet beschikbaar NB-IoT internationale roaming wordt in deze 9 landen ondersteund: Nederland, Duitsland,
Griekenland, Hongarije, Kroatië, Oostenrijk, Polen, Slowakije, Tsjechië. Nationale en internationale roaming voor NB-IoT is in ontwikkeling. Kijk regelmatig op onze website voor updates”
Thanks a lot for your swift response! That clarifies a lot
