Since Nordic Semiconductor announced that it has partnered with one of the world’s largest international cellular carriers, iBASIS, to use nRF9160 System-in-Package (SiP) module and to include an iBasis simcard on each of the nRF9160 Development Kit, there has been a lot of interest and questions about the coverage, supported mode(LTE-M/ NB-IoT) and PSM/eDRX availability. For more information on iBasis, feel free to check out our iBasis Cellular Connectivity Partner page.
Here we share iBasis' coverage countries list with detailed supported features, modes and timers,etc based on their latest testing and the lists will keep updated.
iBasis basic coverage can be found on their web page and the GSMA Mobile IoT Deployment map can be found here, but the attached based on the latest actual field test. The list would be useful for customers to develop on nRF9160 with global iBasis eSIM.
