Is GSM being shutdown in North America?

Now that Blynk supports the sim800 modules, thus question seems appropriate for this forum.

Are the gsm networks in North America quickly being shutdown, or am I misunderstanding this technology? Will the sim800l modules be obsolete (and useless) soon?

Hm. Interesting. Look like you are right. So, did you buy 3G shield already :slight_smile:?

Aha, we heard about it, and we’re really not happy with that…
So we will introduce 3G, 5G and LORA in future…

This is disappointing. Is there a cheap module on the market that will allow for SMS service in North America?
