IoT Guide: 2G and 3G Network Shutdowns


It’s the beginning of the end for 2G and 3G networks…

In some countries, it’s already happened. The trend for sunsetting mobile networks began in 2016 when US-based AT&T shut down its 2G network. Since then, many other major global carriers have shut down 2G and 3G networks or announced plans to do so. Almost all 2G and 3G networks will be shut down in Europe, the US and Canada over the next three to five years.
