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.
On January 10, 2018, Taiwanese Regulator National Communications Commission (NCC) published the definitive version of Technical Regulation LP0002 for Low-power Radio-frequency, effective immediately upon publication. The main changes are as follows:
Additional frequency bands available for RFID devices from 922-928 MHz to 920-928 MHz.
Addition of newly announced frequency bands for mobile broadband business to the Frequency Allocation Table.
Allocation of 920-925 MHz for ‘other IoT devices’.
For any devices currently approved with UHF RFID technology, such devices may only operate on the previously permitted band 922-928 MHz. If manufacturers would like any currently approved devices to use the extended range of 920-928 MHz, then a new approval will be required.
As regulations change from time to time in many countries you should contact CSIA for up to date information.
