3G Network in Australia is Shutting Down: Upgrade to Oz Smart Things' 4G GPS Trackers Now

3G Network in Australia is Shutting Down: Upgrade to Oz Smart Things' 4G GPS Trackers Now

Australia's 3G network is on the brink of shutdown, with services ceasing by September 2024.

This major shift, beginning in December 2023, is due to the global rise of 4G and 5G technologies, necessitating the reallocation of the 3G spectrum to enhance these newer networks. The implications for businesses using 3G GPS tracking devices are significant: without an upgrade to 4G devices, fleet operations could face major disruptions.

The transition from 3G to 4G isn't just a SIM card swap; it requires a complete hardware upgrade, as 3G devices are incompatible with 4G networks. The benefits of moving to 4G are numerous: faster connection speeds, lower latency, increased processing power, and improved reliability. These improvements are not only crucial for maintaining current operational efficiency but also for future-proofing your business in the evolving technological landscape.

To prepare for this transition, businesses should assess their current GPS devices, plan the upgrade process, and consider the overall impact on their fleet and operations. The process includes understanding which devices need upgrading and coordinating the installation timeline, ensuring minimal disruption to daily operations.
