End of 3G Network to Affect Vehicle Features

Millions of 3G connected devices in the United States are experiencing disruption of service after AT&T shut down its 3G network on Feb. 22. Verizon and T-Mobile will reportedly follow suit in the third quarter of 2022 by also shutting down their 3G systems.

The use of 3G in vehicles continued until last year, which means auto makers will have to implement a substitute in the absence of 3G, or certain features will stop working. Features include WiFi hotspots, emergency SOS call services, in-navigation traffic, location, remote lock and unlock of doors, connectivity to smartphone apps, voice assistants and voice-enabled services such as OnStar.
