Will PM also shut down it’s 3G network?

 

“T&T is the first of the big three, closing its 3G network on February 22, 2022. T-Mobile has pushed its 3G shutdown to July 1, 2022, after initially planning for an October closing in 2021. Sprint, now merged with T-Mobile, will close its 3G network on May 31, 2022.”

 

Cut and pasted from Google search.

Bell — including Bell MTS — is shutting down its CDMA or 3G network at the end of this month

Currently there is no plan to turn off 3G in Canada (as per many posts in Community).

Hi @Beer don't worry, 3G will stay here for at least 2 or 3 years.   

lol depending on what lens you are looking through, that could be a good thing or a bad thing

That is only in the USA. Old news!

Canada has another 3 years so people on old 3G phones will have to get a new one with 4G/LTE and maybe ones with 5G.
