In recent times, we've observed a shift away from 2G and 3G networks towards faster and more efficient technologies like 4G and 5G. This change is driven by the need for faster data transfer speeds, increased network capacity, and improved connectivity. As a result, many network providers around the world are phasing out their 2G and 3G networks, which will have a significant impact on GPS tracking devices that rely on these networks to function.

How bad is it?

This development has a direct impact on businesses and individuals who depend on tracking devices to monitor their assets and vehicles. GPS trackers that rely on 2G and 3G networks will no longer be able to function once these networks are closed down. As such, upgrading to newer devices that are compatible with 4G or 5G networks has become an essential move.

The Solution

Fortunately, Bluetrack UK, a leading manufacturer of GPS tracking devices, has already started to develop devices that are compatible with these newer networks. These devices offer faster and more efficient tracking, as well as better connectivity and coverage. Moreover, they are cost-effective and reliable with longer battery life, making them a wise investment in the long run.

Bluetrack UK's new GPS trackers, unlike our older ones, do not rely on 2G or 3G networks. Instead, they use new NB-IoT with CAT-M1 performance technology that offers global coverage, making them suitable for use worldwide.

Next Steps

In conclusion, the closure of 2G and 3G networks is a necessary step towards faster and more efficient mobile connectivity. However, it is essential to upgrade to newer GPS tracking devices that are compatible with 4G or 5G networks to continue tracking and monitoring assets and vehicles. Bluetrack UK's GPS trackers are a reliable, cost-effective, and efficient option that is worth considering for fleet management, vehicle tracking, personal tracking, and asset monitoring. With a 3-year warranty and the ability to track in real-time, Bluetrack UK's GPS tracking devices are perfect for businesses and individuals looking for reliable and efficient GPS tracking solutions.
