3G Service to end in 2022
November 19, 2021
In the event of an alarm, make sure your system communicates to our monitoring center. If it’s over a 3G cellular network, supported either by AT&T or Verizon, it’s very important you know that 3G will soon no longer be in service.
Both AT&T and Verizon will discontinue their cellular network required to operate 3G cellular devices. They’re migrating away from the old telecommunication technology and adopting the faster and more efficient Long-Term Evolution or LTE.
As a result of this 3G shutdown, every security panel with that old network will stop working.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
In order to maintain an active cellular communication path, it’s crucial that your security system is upgraded to LTE. The best thing you can do is contact us immediately, and we will help you get your system up to date.
