Cheap cellular modem


Hey IOTers,

I’m in search of a cheap, readily available (read digikey/mouser/newark carried) cellular modem (lte-m or 3g preferred) to be used alongside an esp32s2. The overall BOM per unit costs 15-20 dollars right now and i’m hoping that there is a decent cellular modem with built in gps I can use that won’d quadruple costs.

Even a gps module that is reasonably sized and doesn’t cost 20 dollars would be great.

I realize that these requirements might be a long shot but I’m not versed in all of the great chipsets avaialable, hoping one of you might have some ideas.

Any recommendations?

P.S. I’d probably just grab the gpy if it ran on the esp32s2, I need some of the additionaly functionalities.
