Telstra has announced today they will be pulling the plug on their 3G network in just over four years time. Just as we said goodbye to 2G back in December of 2016, 3G will go the way of the dodo in June of 2024.
Between now and then Telstra have committed to expand the coverage of their 4G network as well as build out their burgeoning 5G beyond select CBDs.
I wish all those making use of EFTPOS machines and cellular IoT devices the best of luck in dealing with the impending 3G apocalypse.
