Current view on NB-IoT/LTE-M vs 2G/3G/4G


I’m new to the IoT game, and developing a small quantity of trial units in NYC in the US, and from looking around, it seems NB-IoT/LTE-M is the right kinda fit for this, we have very minimal data requirements.

However I’m finding it hard to find out, from actual people, what the coverage is like in practice. From what I understand they just reuse existing towers, so it feels like it should be fine, but I’d be much happier if someone who has used these technologies could chime in on how reliable they are.
