SMS gateways



I plan to continue living in a rural area with a GSM provider that will support 2G. =)

It looked interesting until I got to the part where it says it uses a
2G GSM modem.  AT&T has said quite firmly that they will turn off
their 2G network in 2017, and press reports say that T-Mobile is
already turning off 2G in favor of LTE.

What do you plan to do instead next year?
