3G is going away

3G’s On the Way Out. Move to 4G LTE Today

Don’t be left without IoT data services. AT&T will turn off its 3G network on February 22, 2022, so you can’t run your sensor network on an ALTA 3G Gateway after that date.*

AT&T is shifting more resources to its 5G network like other carriers. The carrier continues to notify customers that they must upgrade to at least a 4G LTE-enabled device before its 3G network shuts down.

See “The Countdown to the End of 3G Continues” to know which ALTA 4G LTE Cellular Gateway is right for you.

Connect to a 4G LTE cellular network with our ALTA 4G LTE Gateway. Please call and talk to a Monnit Sales Representative today at 801.561.5555 or email the sales team at

*Applies only to ALTA 3G Cellular Gateways in the United States. 3G gateways deployed internationally are not affected.

In this article, you will learn:

  • How to configure Link Mode in iMonnit.
  • What a sensor does if it can’t connect to a gateway.
