3-2-16 Many customers have purchased DroneMobile remote start systems from Dealer Automotive Services. For that reason, we wanted to pass on to you the information we have received on the retirement of the older models of the DroneMobile units. Here is what we know from Firstech/Compustar:
In an effort to focus on faster 3G and 4G networks, AT&T will fully retire 2G in the U.S.A. by January 2017. DroneMobile by Firstech/Compustar is offering free hardware upgrades for qualifying U.S. customers affected by this network shutdown. If you or your business is located in the USA and uses DroneMobile hardware that is powered by AT&T’s 2G network, you will be affected by this sunset.
The following DroneMobile models are powered by AT&T’s 2G network: DR1000 (sold from 2009-2012), DR2000 (sold from 2011-2014), DR3000 (sold from 2013-2015).
Firstech/Compustar is committed to making sure that its customers enjoy the benefits of their DroneMobile systems. Unfortunately, that will not be possible with AT&T 2G hardware in the USA. For this reason, Firstech/Compustar is launching its DroneMobile Swapout Campaign, which will provide customers in the USA with a free DR3400 hardware upgrade when they subscribe to a new 1 year premium, 3 year premium or 3 year basic subscription.
