2G-3G Switch-Off October-2022 Member Report

2G-3G Switch-Off October-2022 Member Report

Summary:

When they were first introduced to the market, 2G and 3G were highly important innovations, but as greater technological advances have emerged, their importance has waned, and usage of both technologies is now diminishing worldwide. As a result, many operators and governments are determining that the older 2G and 3G technologies as well as the spectrum allocated to them should be switched off for the faster and more efficient 4G and 5G networks. This transition is typically referred to as the 2G and 3G switch-off.

Drawing on information collected by the GSA about the switch-off of 2G and 3G around the world, this report focuses on the number of operators that have already shut down these networks, those in the process of doing so and those planning such a move. It also identifies countries and territories that have in progress, completed or planned switch-offs.

• By the end of September 2022, GSA had identified 142 operators that have either completed, planned or are in progress with 2G and 3G switch-offs in 56 countries and territories

• 76 operators in 43 countries and territories have either completed or planned 2G switch-offs

Of those, 24 operators in 15 countries and territories have completed 2G switch-offs
51 operators in 31 countries and territories have planned 2G switch-offs
Two operators in two countries and territories currently have 2G switch-offs in progress
• 80 operators in 42 countries and territories have either completed, planned or are in progress with 3G switch-offs

Of those, 28 operators in 17 countries and territories have completed 3G switch-offs
46 operators in 31 countries have planned 3G switch-offs
Six operators in six countries and territories have 3G switch-offs in progress
