IO News: Adafruit IO Plus Plan Upgrades Are Here! @AdafruitIO #IoT

One of the most consistent requests we’ve had since we launched IO Plus (IO+) was for a way to raise the IO+ account limits even further. We’re happy to announce that with an Adafruit IO+ subscription, you can now add data rate and storage time limit upgrades!

From our development blog:

The single biggest thing we do to make sure that Adafruit IO is available for as many people as possible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year is rate limiting the messages that pass through the system. For IO Free accounts, the rate limit is 30 messages per minute, or about 1 every 2 seconds. For IO+, we double the available data rate to 60 messages per minute, or about 1 per second. That’s double the data rate for everyone using IO+, but still a hard cap on usage.

The new IO+ subscription upgrades are:

  • Data Rate can be boosted in 10 points per minute increments for $2 per month or $24 per year.
  • Data Storage can be boosted in 30 day increments for $5 per month or $60 per year.

So if you want to double your data rate again from 60 to 120, that would be 6x Data Rate Boost @ $12 per month or $144 per year. If you wanted to double your data storage length from 60 days to 120 days that would be 2x Data Storage Boost @ $10 per month or $120 per year.

This is our first experiment with a new kind of subscription upgrade for IO+, please stop by the forums or our channel on the Adafruit Discord server and reach out if you have any questions!
