I found this news, from MNO Telia Company, about their plan to phase out the 3G network in Norway starting at year-end 2018/2019. It got me thinking and a lot of “!?!?” came to my mind. When and how this will be done in SEE region – there are still no announcements, but this will happen for sure. I hope that our MNOs will also be transparent regarding their plans for 2G/3G phase out, so system integrators and end users would have time to prepare. There are thousands and thousands of devices connected over 2G and 3G for various application – among those there are some used for critical infrastructure, like for example a water level measurements solutions of flood prevention system. Anyhow, this definitely needs to be carefully planned and probably orchestrated by the RF regulator, so that someone’s business or even someone’s life wouldn’t be jeopardized.
