Best 2G subscription for tracking device?

I would like to buy a tracking device for a piece of equipment to help me track it down if it gets stolen. However, many of these trackers require a SIM card with 2G to be able to track it. In the UK, you can get a sub for about GBP 5/month. Can anyone recommend what the best priced option in Switz would be?

Am under the impression that 2g is due to be phased out very soon..i think Swisscom, for example, are doing that 1st of Jan 2021.

I would go for digital republic, they have a monthly subscription for CHF 4 for trackers.

They have been swapping 2G out of elevators lately, doubt it will last much longer.

Re: Best 2G subscription for tracking device?

They've been swapping 2G sims out of everywhere recently. My alarm company replaced the whole unit a few weeks ago. The technician reckoned 2G was going by the end of the year.

Many thanks all. I knew that 2G was on its way out but I thought there were 3-4 years left before switch off. But Swisscom is indeed switching it off at the end of this year.
