SqwidNet was launched in November 2016 as the Sigfox operator in South Africa. SqwidNet is driving innovation through a nation-wide IoT network that is low-cost and low-power. With its growing partner network, SqwidNet gives business access to an IoT ecosystem that brings their assets to life.
The company began through a partnership between Dark Fibre Africa (DFA) and global IoT operator Sigfox. Sigfox today has a presence in 60 countries and covers over 1 billion people with its global network, allowing Sigfox Ready™ devices to roam at no extra cost. The SqwidNet network currently covers over 90% of the South African population, enabling millions of physical devices to be connected to the digital world.
