Anvil’s new Variable Data Allowance SIMs are designed to match your data usage in any given month to the optimum data allowance tariff ranging from as little as 100 megabytes up to 128 gigabytes per month. This means that you can avoid paying for a data allowance that isn’t always used, saves on overuse charges where higher traffic is generated and therefore reduces overall costs on your project. At the same time giving you peace of mind that you have the internet connectivity that you need.
With a low-cost base tariff (100 MB) in place, thresholds are applied to determine the most cost-effective allowance for you in any given month. So, each month a base tariff of 100 MB is billed and then the following month we invoice, in arrears, for the tariff that has been calculated based on actual usage levels.
These are ruggedised M2M SIMs with no speed throttling.
Specific rules can be allocated for usage capping and automatic SIM suspension if needed.
Monthly Variable Tariffs for Maximum Value
Variable data allowance SIMs are on the high-speed EE 4G network and have a Dynamic IP address.
Data Allowance Options: 100 MB, 500 MB, 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB
If there is the potential need for higher than 128GB of data per month, then we can provide a second variable tariff SIM that ‘takes over’ if needed. A dual SIM router would be required and set to automatically switch to the second SIM at a pre-determined level. An example of how this works is shown below. We can also supply dual SIM routers to suit the requirement.
A much more economical option than committing to long term contracts with high monthly data allowances.
An Example of the Variable Tariff in Practice
|Period||Example Use Description||SIM||Data Used||Tariff Applied|
|Month 1||Project starts – Plans and specs||1|
|Month 2||Project active – physical work||1|
|16 GB + 0.5GB overuse*|
|Month 3||Project active||1|
|128 GB cap applied|
2nd SIM – 16 GB
|Month 4||Project active and completes||1|
|Month 4||No Project||1|
|Month 5||No Project – site installation & connection tested||1|
|Month 5||New Project commences mid-month – plans and specs||1|
