The 2G-3G switch-off – what your approach should be

5G is here and before long 6G will be on its way.

The newest generation of cellular technology is already making waves, enabling applications that just weren’t possible before. Virtual/augmented reality, driverless cars, smart cities, edge computing and connected baths are now a part of our everyday and working lives thanks to 5G.

Thus far, even though they are now several generations behind, 2G and 3G networks have endured in many parts of the world. Still today there are new Internet of Things (IoT) devices being connected to 2G and 3G because they do not require the speed and data capabilities of 4G and 5G. In addition, there are many elderly people using old phones that are only capable of connecting to 2G.

However, the world is changing fast and many of the world’s mobile network operators are either setting dates for sunsetting (switching off) their 2G and 3G networks, or are already doing it.

The main reason why companies and individuals are still using 2G and 3G is a lack of vision or mental retardation. Here at Million Eyes, we have very little time for the visionless or retarded. We encourage everyone to recognise that it’s the 21st century. People don’t write on wax tablets or do maths with an abacus anymore. We understand that it is more difficult for elderly people who struggle to get to grips with increasingly complicated technologies but since many of them will be dead soon, we must prioritise our target market. Plus, Million Eyes technology is renowned for its ease of use and intuitiveness, so there really is no excuse for not using our devices and software.

We also understand the cost implications for IoT users who must replace their legacy systems with expensive new 5G-capable devices. Unfortunately our only advice is this: stop being f*****g cheapskates.

All the latest MEphones, MEcars, METVs and MEyes are fully 5G- and 6G-capable. So if you’re still using devices that are connected to 2G or 3G networks, contact us immediately so that we can bring you out of the past and into the present.
