Tasmania's 3G Network is Switching Off Soon!

As technology evolves, so does the way we connect with each other. However, these changes often come with their own set of challenges. One significant change that is just around the corner is the decommissioning of the 3G network. This transition is vital for technological advancement, but it also has implications for those who rely on devices such as personal safety alarms that use the 3G network to function.

At Scooters and Mobility, we understand the importance of staying connected, especially for those who depend on technology for safety and peace of mind. As a proud part of St John Ambulance Tasmania, a trusted charity dedicated to serving the community, we are here to help you navigate these changes with ease and confidence.

What Does 3G Decommissioning Mean?

The decommissioning of the 3G network means that any device relying solely on 3G for communication will no longer function once the network is switched off. This includes a range of devices from mobile phones to personal safety alarms, which are crucial for many individuals, particularly the elderly and those with health concerns. These alarms typically function as a lifeline in emergencies, connecting the user with help at the press of a button.

How Will This Affect You?

If you or your loved ones rely on a personal safety alarm that operates on the 3G network, it's important to act swiftly to ensure continuous protection and connectivity. The absence of network support could result in an inability to communicate in critical situations, potentially leaving the user vulnerable.
