As GPS tracking industry is getting more and more crowded, you want to make sure to pick product and service the words we only need some requirements. After doing some research and asking around. I found out that most of the GPS tracking companies in Australia are still selling 3G products. Why am I bringing this up? Well, It’s all great for the next couple of years, but after a brief conversation with Telstra’s crowd support and a bit of online research. We found out that the switching off half of the 3G spectrum on 25th of March 2019. Telstra 3G only operates in two frequencies: 2100 and 850. This means that if your device does not support 850mghtz service then it stops to work. Telstra said that they’ll mail out care packages with 4G SIM cards. But if your device doesn’t support a NANO SIM card then it will stop to work.
Well if you don’t operate your device or change the network setting (if applicable) before the disconnection, then you will no longer be able to use your service from this device. To continue, to be able to use your service. We recommend that you upgrade to 4G compatible device. Or a device that’s compatible with the 3G 850 MHz mobiles service. I mean it makes perfect sense. Because they need to refurbish the old 3G frequencies for 4G Networks.
Think about it, obtaining 3G is getting harder and harder to achieve. A couple of years back, Telstra and Optus switched off the 2G networks. And Vodaphone followed a little bit later. We all knew it had to happen in some stage because technology keeps advancing. the telcos need to refurbish the old frequencies to make room for new and advanced networks.
