  • What is 2G and why are we shutting it down?
    The ‘G’ stands for generation. In previous generations of mobile networks, 2G provided our customers with talk and text. Our HSPA+ (3G) network served our customers with web-browsing ability. We are working on a multi-year program to lay the groundwork for the next generation of network technology, which will power the future oftechnologies such as the Internet-of-Things and 5G. As part of this program, we are decommissioning the GSM/GPRS/EDGE network, also called 2G network.
  • I have an older device. How can I find out what network it supports?
