Telus Launches Internet of Things Shop for Businesses
With the launch of the new Telus IoT (Internet of Things) Shop, businesses in Canada can now easily purchase and manage prepaid IoT connectivity on Telus using the first-of-its-kind self-serve online portal. IoT startups and other small businesses can now quickly connect their IoT devices to Telus’ 4G LTE and LTE-M networks.
The Telus IoT Shop removes the hassle of committing to volume requirements, credit checks and other processes that made it difficult for smaller companies to deploy IoT devices. Customers can now pay simply with a credit card, monitor data usage online, quickly change rate plans, and manage SIM statuses.
“Telus is excited to launch the IoT Shop, which removes barriers to entry and increases accessibility to the Telus IoT network,” said Telus Vice President Michael Cihra in an issued statement:
“The TELUS IoT Shop has made ordering and managing IoT SIMs an easy, painless experience.” said Casey Matson-Dekay, CTO at Loop Insights. “The self-serve portal allowed me to order the SIMs I needed only a few days before they needed to be deployed. Once our devices were live, I immediately had full visibility into their usage and status, which helps Loop Insights remain agile and informed while we evolve our products.”
The Telus IoT Shop is offering flexible and affordable IoT connectivity with as little as 100 MB or as much as 40 GB of shareable data, for one to 100 SIM cards on a single account. All data plans renew automatically on a 30-day cycle, or once the data pool has been exhausted.
The Telus IoT Shop is now live at telus.com/iotshop.
