Most network providers are projected to close their 3G networks by the end of 2021, or in the very near future. Right now 4G cellular networks are available and in many countries operators are implementing fifth generation of mobile services. It will be optimized for various applications including different Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios.
The Internet of Things will be linked to more than 1.5 billion digital products by 2022 using cellular connectivity. The cost of use was the most frequently raised concern with customers. The customer did not require the features that were included in the plan. It was ultimately costly to purchase unused data and solutions. Good news is customers already have a choice and they can migrate to an affordable wireless network like Helium’s People network, based on LoRaWAN technology.
