Live in the United States? Check out the Boron LTE. See the cellular FAQ for 2G/3G country availability.
The Boron GSM is a powerful 2G/3G enabled development kit that can act as a standalone cellular endpoint . It is based on the Nordic nRF52840 and has built-in battery charging circuitry so it’s easy to connect a Li-Po and deploy your local network in minutes.
The Boron is great for connecting projects to the Particle Device Cloud or as a gateway to connect an entire group of local endpoints where Wi-Fi is missing or unreliable. It's everything you love about the Electron, with more features like Bluetooth.
