Telstra has revealed its AU$100 million deal to outfit Intellihub's smart meters with IoT SIMs. Telstra proposes that this plan will enable better energy management as well as provide insight and remote monitoring of the energy network. The company also posits that its IoT SIMs will provide Intellihub with price certainty over the next 10 years.

Telstra has announced its AU$100 million deal to implement IoT SIMs into Intellihub’s smart meters. In a blog post, Telstra Enterprise Group Executive, David Burns claimed that this is the biggest deal regarding IoT devices. This partnership will aid Intellihub and its consumers to more efficiently control energy demand as well as provide real-time insight of the energy network.

Intellihub is an Australian and New Zealand based organisation that offers utility services such as data solutions, metering and energy services. The company was established 4 years ago and has since provided over 1 million meters with 1 thousand new meters installed each day. Each new device will include Telstra's IoT SIMs, ensuring Intellihub's price stability over the next decade.

Furthermore, Telstra's LPWAN network is connected across 1.2 million meters, and 50 thousand new devices are added to the network each month. Telstra argues that its Cellular LPWANs are scalable, economical and better than the competition.
