The NB-IoT Bands selected for North America are B4 (1700 MHz), B12 (700 MHz), B26 (850 MHz), B66 (1700 MHz) and B71 (600 MHz). Narrow Band IoT is a low power wide area (LPWA) technology developed specifically for IoT devices and services. 3GPP has assigned different frequency bands in different regions for this cellular IoT standard.
