Considering the Sigfox/LoRaWAN data plan. 

*When sending downlink messages, it is important to Consider your existing Sigfox/LoRaWAN data plan, as this may have an impact due to duty cycle limitations on the number of downlinks you can send.  

Sigfox generally allows a maximum of 4 downlink messages per day. While LoRaWAN is not really limited, it has a downlink rate of up to 10 messages per day for each node connected to the network. The rate is therefore dependent on the efficiency of the payload and how many devices are connected to each node.
