Several hundreds of thousands of Danish cars risk traffic bans

Telenor, as the first telecommunications company in Denmark, has announced when it will switch off the 2G network. This could have consequences for hundreds of thousands of Danish cars.

In Sweden, they are somewhat further ahead with the phasing out of the 2 and 3G network than in Denmark. As early as next year, the Swedes will switch off the two types of networks.

That's what the Swedish edition of Auto motor og sport writes.

And that could have consequences for many of the cars on Swedish roads. But the same is actually the case here at home.

All cars sold in the EU since 31 March 2018 must be equipped with an active emergency call system. The so-called eCall.

The first of these systems, however, rely on the 2G and 3G network, which, at least in Sweden, will be switched off very soon. In Denmark alone, a whopping 218,000 new passenger cars were sold in 2018.

And immediately there is no help to be had. Neither from the authorities nor the car brands. It is the individual car owner's own responsibility that the emergency call in the car works. Otherwise, it will be equivalent to a traffic ban on sight.

This is what Carl-Erik Stjernvall, an expert at Riksförbundet M Sweden, tells Auto motor og Sport. At home, however, motorists immediately have a little longer to drive.

As the first telecommunications company present in Denmark, Telenor has announced that it will switch off the 2G network in 2030.

However, the telecommunications company will not give details on an exact date for the time being. That's what the Engineer writes.

At present, there is no unloading that keeps the oldest eCall systems alive after the shutdown of the 2G network, not even in Sweden.

Carl-Erik Stjernvall explains that if the eCall system stops working, it is tantamount to a traffic ban – i.e. that the cars are not allowed to drive on the roads.

At home, a brand such as Nissan, for example, has already informed some car owners that the shutdown of the 2G network will have consequences for them. However, in a slightly different way. Read more about it here.
