3G may phase out in 2025

It has been estimated that Singapore may phase out 3G connection as soon as 2025.

The Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA) has rolled out an 8 week long research involving the public’s feedback on the connections to aid its development of relevant regulatory frameworks and policies with the upcoming change.

According to IMDA, there has been an average decrease of 22% in 3G users yearly from 2016 to 2019. As of February this year, there’s only 1.81million 3G users as compared to 6.68million 4G users. With that said, that is still quite a significant amount of 3G users, which comprises of regular users, for business use and tourists. There has been a steady increase in 4G users as it provides better service and greater speed, which improves the overall user experience.

This change to phase out 3G is inevitable in time to come and we hope you and your business will be ready way before this change hits us. NPN is the official Sunmi distributor in Singapore and Sunmi has various POS systems which are already for 4G. Make the switch now so you don’t have to panic and fuss about it when the time comes. Making the switch now also means you can develop the right program now instead of writing a program that may be unsuitable in a few years time.
