LTE-M1 not available?

#1

I recently purchased the LTE beacons and was informed that I can use them with another network option even if LTE-M1 wasn’t available yet. Has anyone been able to do so?

The modem we are currently using in the first version of LTE Beacons does actually support GSM connection in addition to the LTE-M and Narrowband, so it is possible to fallback to GSM in case there is no LTE Cat M1 or NB-IoT range.

This function is not listed in the public API, so please connect with our support team at contact (at) estimote.com, so we can double-check the availability of LTE-M in your region.

Please note that GSM mode will consume 2x power and drain the battery twice as fast.
