Swarm is commercially live!

I am thrilled to announce that the Swarm network is now commercially live and available for customers to begin using! Swarm is the first low-cost satellite provider to offer commercial services to every point in the world, and companies across agriculture, logistics, energy, maritime, global development, and more can now globally scale their business with Swarm overnight.

Our focus from day one has been meeting the enormous and growing demands for a low-cost IoT network with 100% global continuous coverage. Swarm’s affordable pricing also makes connectivity available for the first time to markets that have historically been priced out of satellite solutions. Swarm gives businesses the ability to gather critical data and make more informed decisions, regardless of location, while spending 4x to 20x less on satellite data than before.

One of our customers and partners, Bruce Trevarthan, founder and CEO of New Zealand-based Layer X Group, puts it well: “The value of data is not obvious until you start collecting a lot of it, but the cost of communications in very remote locations has been a barrier to achieving this. The low price of Swarm’s satellite communications services removes this barrier entirely, making it viable for our customers to collect increased amounts of data on a more regular basis. Using Swarm, we have seen monthly data collection costs using our service drop from NZ$450 per month to less than NZ$15.”

Swarm has come a long way since Ben and I founded the company in 2017, and we enter 2021 with exciting momentum. We have 81 satellites in space, 72 of which are for commercial services. We’ve grown the number of customers on our network, and had almost 5 million data packets sent over the Swarm network (and counting)!

Track our satellites in real-time here.

Swarm is already opening brand new markets that could never afford satellite data in the past. We imagine a future where every crop in a farm field, every truck on the road, every refrigerated container with vaccines, and every high value pallet being shipped internationally will have a Swarm Tile embedded into it for rapid and up-to-the-hour tracking and monitoring.

Now that Swarm is commercially available, we’re excited to begin supporting these use cases – and many more – to a growing number of customers around the world.
