As many of you know, AT&T and Verizon have announced sunsets for their 3G networks. AT&T is calling for a sunset date of February 22, 2022 and Verizon is calling for a sunset of December of 2022 – 10 months later.

Because of the Coronavirus many of our customers have been reluctant to have alarm technicians enter their homes and businesses so that we can upgrade their equipment to make them compatible with newer networks.

The Monitoring Association (TMA) is asking dealers to contact members of the house and senate committees.

If your business is headquartered in one of the following states we need you to reach out to them: AK, AZ, CA, CT, CO, FL, HI, IA, IL, IN, KS, LA, MA, MI, MN, MO, MS, MT, NC, NE, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, WA, WI, WV

Include your address on the emails that you send so they know you are a constituent. Check the list below to see who to contact.

I provide systems that use the cellular network to protect the safety, and property of homes and businesses throughout our state.

Alarm users (including many seniors who use the systems to allow them to remain at home) depend on these systems everyday.

Many of these systems use the 3G cellular network and must be upgraded, otherwise they will cease to communicate once the 3G networks are shutdown. The upgrade requires a technician to enter the home or business. Because of the Coronavirus pandemic many of our customers have been reluctant to have us enter their homes and businesses. For six months and counting this has curtailed what was to be a two year transition.

We need your help to ensure these protective systems can continue to be effective. Please urge AT&T to delay the shutdown of its 3G cellular network which is currently scheduled for February 22, 2022 – a mere 16 months from now – to December 2022. This would then have both Verizon and AT&T shutting down their 3G network cellular networks at the same time.
