RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – If there’s one thing we know about technology, it’s that it’s ever-changing and ever-advancing. Mobile carriers are making room for further advancements by kicking 3G networks to the curb.
Many cell phones, tablets, medical devices, and home security systems using 3G connectivity will be phased out in 2022. Older cell phones that use 3G won’t be able to make emergency calls to 911, either.
The Federal Trade Commission said you may still be affected even if your carrier isn’t listed because some medical devices or small cell phone companies utilize AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile networks.
The change means people still using 3G will have to upgrade to newer devices, but others may just have to upgrade their software. If you’re unsure what the next step is for you, the best thing to do is contact your service provider for help.
While they don’t cover the cost of a new device, the FCC does offer programs to pay for the cost of your phone or internet services. The Lifeline program provides a discount on phone service for qualifying low-income consumers.
The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program provides a temporary discount of up to $50 per month for broadband service for eligible households during the pandemic.

BERLIN (AP) — The World Health Organization says the number of COVID-19 cases recorded worldwide increased by 11% last week compared with the previous week, with the biggest increase in the Americas. The gain followed a gradual increase since October.
The U.N. health agency said in its weekly epidemiological report released late Tuesday that there were nearly 4.99 million newly reported cases around the world from Dec. 20-26.
Desmond Tutu is being remembered for his passionate advocacy on behalf of LGBTQ people as well as his fight for racial justice. But the South African archbishop’s campaign against homophobia had limited impact in the rest of Africa, where same-sex marriage remains illegal and most countries criminalize gay sex.
Even within his own denomination, the Anglican Communion, there has been no continentwide embrace of LGBTQ rights. Leaders of Ghana’s Anglican Church, for example, have joined other religious leaders there in endorsing a bill that would impose prison sentences on people who identify as LGBTQ or support that community.
