Taiwan to stop 3G service starting in 2019

More than 6.43 million 3G cellphone users must migrate to the 4G network by the end of the year, when the 3G licenses are set to expire, the National Communications Commission (NCC) said.

The 3G licenses expire on Dec. 31, meaning that the service will legally terminate next year, commission spokesperson Weng Po-tsung (翁柏宗) said.

The four telecoms are to still offer voice communication through 3G networks with the use of circuit-switched fallback technology, in which the voice and messaging services are delivered to 4G devices through the use of the global system for mobile communications or another circuit-switched network, Weng said.

These companies are likely to keep 3G technologies for some time, he said.

However, users of 3G might need to change to 4G SIM cards if they want to continue using their 3G cellphones after the telecoms’ licenses expire, he said.

Contact CSIA for a list of these new applicable standards.
