Sunsetting of 2G and 3G Technologies

As previously communicated in March 2023, French operators have announced the gradual sunsetting of 2G and 3G networks.

Sunsetting dates for 2G and 3G technologies communicated by French operators:

  • Bouygues Telecom: by the end of the year 2026 for 2G and by the end of the year 2029 for 3G

  • Orange: by the end of the year 2025 for 2G and by the end of the year 2028 for 3G

  • SFR: by the end of the year 2026 for 2G and by the end of the year 2028 for 3G

Following the discontinuation of these 2G and 3G technologies, connected devices not compatible with more recent cellular technologies will no longer be able to connect to the mobile network of the aforementioned operators.

These technological evolutions being independent of Matooma, the company cannot be held responsible in any case for the service interruption linked to the closure of these technologies.

This notification aims to allow you to anticipate and prepare for the technological transition of your equipment within your entity before the aforementioned technical shutdown dates. We invite you to approach the manufacturer of your equipment now to verify their compatibility with 4G and/or 5G technologies, the protocols used, to test, and to validate the operation of your equipment with SIM cards provided by Matooma on these technologies.

We are fully aware that this announcement may have a significant impact on your connected device fleet and your activity. Rest assured that Matooma is here to support you through this transition by guiding you towards communication technologies suited to your projects.
