The article says "COULD BE" near not "is" near. They aren't putting telemetry devices on 4G LTE so fast. That plus this device uses Verizon who, the article states, is only shutting down it's 1X network at the END OF 2019. This is using the faster UMTS network. I doubt there are many 4G LTE asset trackers out there. That band would be superfluous for this type of telemetry device. If you look at the company who makes this specific device (The New How for the global connected economy - CalAmp) who is the parent company of LoJack, while I can't speak for the eBay stuff, the zillions of devices CALAMP has in the field I don't think they will all go extinct so fast. They make about 15 models. They mostly serve the car rental and construction asset tracking industry. I wouldn't panic so fast.

Spec sheet attached.

Feeling good about your purchase is fine however arguing with random strangers in the face of facts is irrational. AT&T and verion are leaving 3G as well as other carriers.
The end of 2G/3G networks as we know them | DigiKey Verizon confirm with certainty they are done with 3G /verizon

How long will 3G networks remain in use in the US? - Quora sources confirm the end of 3G

T-Mobile is also looking to bail Another technology sunset? The 3G sunset may be sooner than you think

There are thousands of articles that say the same thing, this is not a rumor. Bottom line do not buy a 3G based GPS tracker

I'll worry about it in 2 years, by then I will have saved enough pennies to buy a new one.
