Televend navigates vending operators through the 3G Sunset

Richard Davies

Televend stands as Europe’s top automated retail platform, connecting over 365,000 machines. They are well prepared for the upcoming changes in the UK’s mobile technology landscape known as the 3G sunset. Having done it before, they know how to help vending operators switch to 4G effortlessly.

Richard Davies, Televend’s UK Sales Manager, emphasises the benefits of the tech upgrade: ‘4G networks work better for vending machines because they are more reliable, and features like signal reception, authorisation and prioritisation work much more efficiently than with 3G.’

Moreover, Televend ensures flexibility by allowing its devices to connect to all major UK networks (Vodafone, EE UK, O2, Three UK) through a roaming SIM. Vending operators can choose the network that best serves their local area

‘Televend’s telemetry and payment devices are designed to work with 2G, 3G, and 4G, ensuring our customers won’t be affected by the upcoming 3G sunset’, Richard adds.

Switching to newer networks isn’t just a change – it’s an opportunity for vending operators to improve customer experience and operational efficiency. Faster transactions, remote machine monitoring, cashless payments, and better communication are key opportunities for operators to upgrade their business.

To summarise, Richard said: ‘Nowadays, it’s not just about knowing what’s happening; it’s about anticipating developments before they happen, and newer technologies are helping us achieve that.’
