Re: Beware of the boomerang effect Despite "a much lower-cost radio system than its rivals." it's not always the lowest cost that wins the day obviously. There's so much luck and unpredictability of lots of factors as noted that will ultimately decide who' succeeding and who's not. This may be one of the one's to watch to see how fate turns.

Re: Beware of the boomerang effect Meanwhile, VZW and T-Mobile have said they will deploy NB-IoT nationwide this year. It's probably safe to think AT&T will do likewise.

It must have been a difficult article to write and publish.

Iain is getting old? Iain, it is time to move on. You keep repeating yourself over and over with the same ranting, like an old man. I don't know what's wrong with you and Sigfox, but this is getting simply tiring. Don't you have any other stories on your sleeves that would be helpful or inspiring?

Balanced... Iain, your past coverage of Sigfox left me wondering whether you had an axe to grind wrt this particular company. This story, however, appears well-balanced and deep. I have friends who're in the Sigfox Network Operator business and, for their sake, and the sake of partners and employees, I hope the company survives. It's not clear, though, what it'll take for a turn-around, especially with cellular providers trying to get into the act and with more buzz around "LoRA Service Providers". It might well be that Sigfox missed its chance.
