Stay ahead of the 3G sunset

What is the “3G sunset”? As Mobile Network Operators focus on delivering the continued roll out of 5G networks, they’re experiencing the need for increased bandwidth to respond to the higher demand by their users, especially to accommodate increased data requirements and provide faster speeds. As a result, many providers are shutting down their 2G and 3G networks in favor of 4G LTE networks. Many of the major US providers have announced end dates for their 3G sunset, including Verizon (by the end of 2022), Sprint (December 2022) and AT&T (February 2022).

If you’ve been caught up in the 3G sunset, you may have found yourself having to rethink your IoT connectivity deployments. The cost and hassle for businesses to replace SIMs is a major headache, particularly if you have devices deployed in remote locations, in large volumes or on the move.

New developments in connectivity technology move quickly, so ensuring your IoT connectivity is future-proofed is key to keeping control of your costs and staying ahead of the game.
