O2 will be carrying out UK IoT connectivity trials later this year

Tom Rebbeck, Research Director and Head of IoT and Enterprise research at Analysys Mason comments on the British telco O2 announcement that it will be trialling 3GPP-compliant Internet of Things connectivity tech in the UK in 2017.

"It's another sign of Telefónica hedging its bets – a small investment in Sigfox and some announcements, trials of NB-IoT in Chile and Spain, and it was part of the announcement at MWC of operators backing LTE-M. It's being more cautious than some other big operators like Vodafone, AT&T, DT and Orange, " Tom Rebbeck told The Register.
