The 12 byte message tech that could be revolutionary
Going from 100 bit/s to 50 kbit/s doesn’t mean that you’ll have a shorter transmission time and be able to process more and longer messages.

SIGFOX made careful choices in order to offer a resilient and global value proposition to its customers, who already are using the network in many countries, while Actility has yet to report that they have an official coverage anywhere with a true service-level agreement.
