Welcome to the latest addition to the LimeNET family, LimeSIM, which is to be used in conjunction with LimeNET Gateway. The LimeNET Gateway, like all LimeNET systems is multi standard and provides connectivity to the nearest macro base station via 2G through to 4G air interface.

This means you can not only create a private network, but also one that can be customised, and that can provide access to the outside world. From there you can create and test premium apps that are verified to run on top of an operator’s network - allowing it to offer premium services to its customers.

Prices and how to get it:

As a bonus, we will now ship the LimeSIM with any LimeNET Gateway at no additional cost. In addition, all the backers who are receiving the unit will also have $10 worth of data with their LimeSIM. Simply power on your LimeNET gateway, and test out the best service you can get from the nearest Marco BTS while you are within the limit. Beyond that you’ll simply sign up for our pay-as-you-go service for which you’ll have full control over how much you spend by being able to set limits on you data usage.

The standard charges for data can be viewed on this link. Please note that as we scale the number of users, the charges will come down significantly. The initial tariffs are focussed on IoT gateway, emergency services, backup for your current ISP and the testing of apps to run on LimeNET.

*If you have already backed the Enterprise, your order will include LimeNET gateway hardware with the LimeSIM pre-installed and a $10 free data package at no additional cost.*
