Hi, the only thing that that I know of are these individual coverage maps right here: https://iotcreators.com/en/coverage-eu/.
@Ronan-Lacroix: Do we have anything else beside that available?
It’s not like we really have a choice (just kidding, of course!)
Thanks for your nice words! We do appreciate this kind of feedback and are happy that our effort and dedication is shown We are all super excited to be part of this community and help you making your ideas come to live!
I will pass this feedback back to the rest of the team. The last few days were really stressful and I’m sure that everybody will be happy to hear your kind words!
I second what Uta said for roaming use-cases.
For non-roaming use-cases, I would recommend to always set the band and the PLMN ID to ensure faster attach. So please be more patient with the attach time if you don’t set these values.
Hi @magnatron and everybody else who was affected:
I’m really sorry that the process was not as smooth as we all have wished for. And if it caused any inconvience, I apologize for this.
We have planned and tested this for month, but you never know how a productive system behaves even though everything went smoothly in a testing environment.
As Afzal said, we had our reasons to do this during “office hours”. We have discussed other options, but that seemed to be the most reasonable way for us to do it as we do have critical devices sending data 24h (so from that perspective our office hours are 24/7).
Did everything go as planned today? No. But we will learn from this and hopefully we can make it better next time. We were super transparent as soon as we realized that there were some problems and updated our community as much as possible while troubleshooting the problems.
Hopefully the next attempt will more smooth. Thanks for your understanding.
@karoly-molnar Hi, you will receive a SIM with a triple-form factor which you can „break apart“ to get your preferred size.
As Afzal said, our SIMs are PIN-free and should work out-of-the-box. So make sure the SIM card is installed correctly and all of the components do work correctly.
I also recommend to check out our documentation library.
We have a step-by-step tutorial for the BG-96: https://docs.iotcreators.com/docs/_-quectel-bg96-tuino096
@Cees-Meijer Thanks for the motivating words!
@rgb93 No worries, the IMEI is gone. Have you tried to change it to CoAP via the portal’s interface?
we know that bugs are frustrating, but let’s keep track on them together so we can fix them ASAP. If you encounter any other problems, please let us know here.
These are the bugs that we are aware of and working on

Finally some good news: the system has been up again since this morning around 9 and since 10 without further disturbance. The team was able to stabilize the system further and currently we don’t see any more issues.
We will come back to you in the next days to give you some more insights on what happened and what we plan to do in order to prevent this from happening again.
Thanks for being patient with us.
The system is up again and you should be able to see messages coming back in (maybe at high quantity since they have been queued). To be transparent: the system is not stabilized a 100% yet, so there might be some issues going forward. But we will keep you informed.
unfortunately, we are experience issues again (messages are not being forwarded) since midnight last night and we are currently troubleshooting the system. UDP und Neul messages will be logged, so in case you need the messages, send me a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with the necessary data as soon as we have the underlying issue fixed.
We understand that this is a major disturbance and we are sincerely sorry about it. The team is working as hard as possible to fix the issue as soon as possible.
When I have any updates, I will let you know.
Everything is back up running.
Thanks for your patience.
We are still fixing the system, but you should be able to see messages coming in again.
This is the current status:
unfortunately, we are still currently working on fixing the problem. I hope that I will be able to give you more information soon.
During our maintenance work we encountered some problems with our database server and we’re working on restoring normal operation.
We’ll inform you as soon as the service is fully back online.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
There are legal limitations imposed on us what we can commercially offer - but that might change in the future. However, then we also probably need to change the commercial offering of the public APN, because it’s basically raw connectivity what you would source from us.
As said the public APN is for TESTING ONLY. We are not planning on closing it down any time soon, but maybe we might at one point. So we cannot guarantee a continuity of this APN forever. Most likely it would change if we can commercially offer it at one point! Maybe it make sense if we have a quick call about it so I understand your requirements a bit better.
