Home Alarms, Medical Devices May Be Affected By 3G Shutdown

(Undated) — It’s not just old phones that may be affected by the impending 3G networks shutdown. Roadside assistance systems, medical devices and home alarms that still depend on 3G networks to receive updates will be impacted as well. Businesses are urging customers who use these devices to either replace or upgrade their current devices in order to avoid service disruption. AT&T is set to shutdown its 3G network next week with other carriers following throughout the year.
