At this online SIG event we will discuss how that micro-powered, energy-harvesting IoT device is going to communicate over the next decade, with a selection of operators and other solution providers.

One significant operator, Japan's DoCoMo, has just killed off their NB-IoT data service, probably because the business model of $1 per device per year didn't make sense. NB-IoT was going to replace the old, simple, low-powered 2G/GPRS services that many operators are retiring. Which leaves a bit of a gap, as 4G technology is a lot more power-hungry and complex, and 5G is only going to continue that trend.
