NL-Alert not yet working on 4G networks

Tuesday 3 June 2014 | 10:59 CET | News
The NL-Alert emergency alarm system does not yet work on 4G networks, according to a national test conducted 02 June. Introduced in 2013, NL-Alert sends a message to mobile phones in a certain area in the event of a local emergency. A test in November 2013 found that the system worked on the GSM and UMTS networks of all three operators. However a control message sent in the latest test to people with 4G phones found they did not receive the message. The justice ministry said it will start talks with operators to ensure the system works over 4G.
