M2M One Newsletter – September 2018
Welcome to M2M One’s September 2018 Newsletter,
This month’s newsletter comes with a personal note;
As many of you may already know I’ll be stepping down as General Manager at M2M One at the end of September and leaving the business.
It’s been amazing over the past 4 years to watch the business grow from 13,000 active SIM cards to over 160,000! and to go from 3 employees to 10. Working at M2M One I’ve had the privilege of working alongside some of the brightest minds in IoT/M2M and support customers building incredible applications.
The thing I’ve always been most proud of at M2M One has been our commitment to customer service and I’m pleased to see that trend continuing with Gideon Borden taking over management of the sales and customer service team. Gideon has always been a pillar of the M2M team with his commitment to solving problems and finding the right solutions for customers being second to none – Gideon can be contacted at email@example.com
From an operational standpoint one of the founders of M2M One and Australian IoT pioneer Darren Moroney will be taking over the day to day management of the business. Those of you who deal with our sister company M2M Connectivity are probably already familiar with Darren and his deep industry knowledge and commitment to customer care – Darren can be contacted at Darren.Moroney@m2mone.com.au
I want to take a moment to sincerely thank all of the customers who have chosen to work with M2M One over my tenure as manager, my peers in the IoT industry who always keep me learning, the phenomenal team we’ve built over the last few years and our founders Daryl & Darren for taking a chance on me to run with the business 4 years ago.

- Reminder on M2M One Cat-M1 Coverage
Over the past few months we’ve spent a lot of energy talking about NB-IoT and what’s coming and possible over the next 12 months but one of the elements getting overlooked is that M2M One has complete access already to Telstra’s nationwide Cat-M1 network today. Cat-M1 technology may in fact be more suitable for a lot of customers currently debating where to go from 3G than NB-IoT or LPWAN solutions due to the increased flexibility.
For those of you who missed it you can access a full guide on M2M One’s Cat-M1 network by clicking here: https://www.m2mone.com.au/iot-network-access-from-m2m-one/
To test Cat-M1 on your M2M One account you can simply put any M2M One SIM into a Cat-M1 capable device, our SIMs are Cat-M1 ready out of the box without any additional changes required – You can view our pricing here: https://m2mone.com.au/m2m-downloads/Pricing/M2M-One-Australian-Price-List.pdf
M2M One are excited to be sponsoring the inaugural IoT Impact (https://iotimpact.com.au/) conference when it comes to Sydney in September.
As a company that shares the IoT Alliance of Australia’s vision for empowering Australian business through IoT/M2M we’re excited to be able to exhibit our selection of dedicated data plans for IoT applications to visitors to the conference.
What is IoT Impact?
