Probably I am late to the party but I just discover this new standard today.

According to Wiki:
Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) radio technology standard developed by 3GPP to enable a wide range of cellular devices and services.

Some Measurement Equipment OEMs like Keysight or Rode are adjusting their SW equipments to be able to analyze the NB-IoT standard.

Here other white papers from other companies: Huawei or Vodafone. It seems like they want to make money as soon as possible from this new "standard".

To me seems like a LoRa or RMF69, but ready for mass industrialization.

I personally want to setup some RMF69 Device at home, LowPowerLab have some nice implementation for it.
I don't need an NB-IoT right now, I am wondering how much it will cost for cellphone users in the future.  :-//

Necroing this post to comment on costs: NB-IoT or LTE-M1 subscriptions are currently costing 99 NOK (~10 USD) per year,  with 5MB/month data included here in Norway. Very reasonable pricing for most practical products.
