#1 Network of Things

Milan, 13th June 2017 – Just a few days after its international launch, the success of Things Mobile is truly extraordinary. The world’s first Mobile Operator dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), which will connect millions of devices around the world, even without Wi-Fi, is off to a rocketing start!

There have been thousands of requests from all over the world from companies in the most diverse sectors, e.g. logistics, medical, security, agritech, smarthome, to develop IoT/m2m projects. To speed up sales around the world, Things Mobile has opened its online shop and signed the first distribution deals.

The Things Mobile SIM card offers over 50% in savings and connects on a permanent roaming basis with 250 accredited partners in over 165 countries, ensuring maximum coverage and better signal quality compared to conventional mobile operators.

As the CEO Manuel Zanella (40 years old), already inventor and CEO of ChatSim, the SIM card created to chat, free of charge and without limits with WhatsApp and other Chat Apps (, “In addition to leading companies in their markets, Things Mobile has also been contacted by some start-ups of crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter which need to connect their devices and are unable to find simple and affordable solutions among those currently available. This global low-cost solution will favor the marketing of dozens of devices.” As stressed by Zanella, It is a market that is still lacking a tangible and affordable solution for IoT projects. That’s why Things Mobile is conquering at lightning pace a market characterized by a lot of confusion and where the offering of large mobile operators is still unclear, not very flexible and usually expensive.”

Things Mobile, instead, has many advantages to offer: multi-network connectivity, very low connection costs and no management fees, and coverage in over 90% of countries around the world.

In addition to Zeromobile, the majority shareholder, the other partners in this project are the investment company Angelsim Sarl, already an investor in ChatSim, and Juan de la Coba, ChatSim co-founder.

Things Mobile is an evolution of Zeromobile, a low-cost mobile telephony operator, founded by Manuel Zanella ( While ChatSim was an evolution of Zeromobile in voice, chat and text messaging, Things Mobile is the evolution in field of data exchange. Manuel Zanella has now tapped the ChatSim experience for this new product.

Manuel Zanella’s new target is to connect millions of IoT devices around the world thanks to Things Mobile, with a permanent roaming rate never seen before.

The rate plus the unique technical features of the SIM card makes Things Mobile the most affordable, competitive and reliable IoT operator on global markets.
