Purchased an nrf9160 DK in the UK but cannot get any success with the ibasis SIM card. Looked at the various posts and it seems that there is no support for LTE-m or NB-IoT at the moment, which is obviously very frustrating as that wasn’t made clear when purchased.
Tried contacting ibasis to see if they had any idea as to when the relevant services would be available but no response.
Is there any information on relevant service rollout in the UK that you can share, as my purchase now seems to have limited value, though the promise of the product is just what I require,
We apologize for the inconvenience. We are seeing connectivity over Telefonica UK. Is that network available in your area? We also have a link that shows where we have LTE-M connectivity available: http://iot.ibasis.com/network-coverage/ If you could please share with me your IMSI or ICCID to troubleshoot further?

Thanks Bjorn and ibasis.
I am attempting to make contact with Vodafone and awaiting a response.
I checked out the suggested page (http://iot.ibasis.com/network-coverage/) and it says “United Kingdom - Yes” but didn’t specify the coverage area.
So I followed the secondary link (https://www.gsma.com/iot/deployment-map/#deployments) and that shows no deployment. This seems contradictory.
Could you shed some light on this ?
I am based in the Cardiff (UK) region and I will follow up with the other requested info (IMSI or ICCID) over the next day or so as I am away presently.
Any info gratefully received.
the eSIM number as printed on the card is 893108931810427588 K070
Hopefully this will help define the issue.
