NEW HOPE, Pa. -- M2M Spectrum Networks, LLC today unveiled its plan to build and operate the first licensed, all-IP, wireless Machine-to-Machine (M2M) network throughout the United States. The network rollout will occur in multiple phases, with several trials scheduled to begin in Q2 2014. The network is expected to cover 75% of the US population by the end of 2015, and 95% by the end of 2016.

M2M Spectrum Networks is the first company to have creatively sourced licensed radio spectrum to build a new ubiquitous, nationwide network. "Our innovative technology offers a timely and highly cost- effective way to deliver M2M solutions that fit customers' needs across the Internet of Things (IoT)," stated Barclay Knapp, Chief Executive Officer of M2M Spectrum Networks, LLC.

"We will be offering our customers a game-changing network, purpose-built and optimized solely for M2M applications, with innovations in provisioning, monitoring, pricing and other dimensions not yet seen in the marketplace. Ours is the M2M network customers can count on for the long term," continued Knapp.

M2M Spectrum Networks has executed numerous strategic partnering agreements with well-established wireless companies such as Commdex, Crown Castle, Raveon, TrueNet, 4G Unwired, and Powder River. These partnerships will make it possible to overcome system complexity, reduce costs, and reduce time to market. This collaboration will clearly catapult M2M Spectrum Networks forward as a nationwide M2M connectivity provider.

Re: buy v. lease
Whichever network it is, they say it will only reach 75% of the US. I have my doubts about that strategy too.

Interesting approach to build versus lease. Why not aggregate networks like a RACO or become an M2M MVNO? Seems like the more affordable option...
