Mobile networks are switching off all 3G services across the world. This sunsetting process means that customers might have a large number of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications which will not work once the 3G service is turned off.
Will I be affected?
GeoMax customers don't have to be concerned. All GeoMax antennas ever sold can be used with the SIM in a 4G/5G Android controller.
When will this happen?
The mobile networks are switching off in a gradual, phased approach across the UK.
3G scheduled turn off dates
No official support for 3G from January 2023 with cell sites not being repaired from this date. Some locations will have 3G actively removed where 4G coverage is strong, so full National Coverage is not guaranteed. Full 3G shutdown expected early 2024.
Vodafone plans to switch off their UK 3G network in 2023, with work commencing in Jan-23 and completion by the end of the year. National Coverage and support for 3G services can not be guaranteed from Jan-23.
Estimated Timeframe for full 3G network closure with work commencing in some regions in early 2023
3G phase-out confirmed, but no confirmed date
