AT&T Will Shut Down 2G Network By 2017

AT&T has announced plans to completely shut down its 2G network by the end of 2016. The company will concentrate on the small number of its customers who rely on the 2G technology and move them over to 3G or 4G by the time of the shutdown.

The carrier claims that only 12 percent of its users currently use 2G-only phones. That number should hopefully decrease without much effort on AT&T’s part over the next four years.
