How You Can Turn the Telstra 3G Shutdown Into a Competitive Advantage


By now, you’ve probably heard about the Telstra 3G shutdown. But if this is news to you, here’s a quick recap: June 2024, Telstra will shut down its 3G network and any devices incompatible with the new 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network and they will no longer be able to receive service, making most Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) inoperable.

That’s why anyone still using 3G PERS devices should upgrade their monitoring systems immediately. But why stop there? Not only can you upgrade your PERS devices, but you can also upgrade the entire technological heart of your operations.

At HSC Technology Group, we have help aged care providers in Australia upgrade their current devices to voice-activated, intelligent, and stylish devices backed by the Talius™ Smart Care Platform including Anglicare, Lendlease, IRT, Feros, Bolton Clarke, and many more….

By upgrading your devices, you can turn the 3G shutdown into an opportunity to overcome five challenges facing the aged care industry, including:

Better Compliance

The elderly need to remain safe, healthy, and able to enjoy life to the fullest. That’s why it’s a requirement for every aged care provider to comply with new government regulations and legislation.

With new technology, you can collect data on all interactions to ensure and meet regulations and care obligations.

Improved staff engagement

By monitoring your residents and collecting different data to keep them safe, the Smart Care Platform reduces staff burnout. Staff are also more engaged in making meaningful connections because they’re not constantly checking on every movement the residents

Family communication

Family members can access real-time information on their loved ones’ movements so they can rest assured knowing their loved ones receive the care they deserve.

Resident autonomy

Residents have privacy and move about freely while the new technology gathers the information and provides staff a level of transparency to create personalised care plans to suit their routines.

Commercial viability

By having access to this advanced and personalised technology, you can stand out from the competition and keep your clients satisfied with the care you provide. Word will also spread about your good reputation and attract more business.


So don’t wait until your devices are unusable before getting an upgrade. Find out if you are eligible for a no-up-front-cost upgrade to the next generation of PERS devices.
