Many operators have announced dates for closing down their 3G networks. For some customers this means that they will need to swap out their SIMs. Of course, this is a huge expense and inconvenience which is causing many of those affected to now research the market for alternative suppliers.
What is the opportunity?
4G is preferable for M2M and IoT customers due to its speed, however moving to 4G may involve switching thousands of SIM cards deployed globally and upgrading devices, which is an operational headache with a large associated cost. Timing is key, especially for tracking and monitoring devices, smart signage, kiosks and ANPR cameras, as they gather data 24/7/365.
End users may take this opportunity to analyse their requirements and may search the market for an alternative. Will they find a Jola Partner? Do you have mobile data packages promoted on your website? It may be worth putting out an email to your customer base to remind them that you can help:
- Review requirements
- Offer a wide range of solutions including multi network SIMs, 5G and NB-IoT
- Help swap out legacy EE SIMs
- Manage SIM estates to avoid overage charges
- Provide a management portal to view data usage
