Verizon to say goodbye to 2G and 3G CDMA in 2021

0. phoneArena 11 Oct 2012, 00:07 posted on

If you were planning on holding on to your Verizon unlimited data plan forever, better forget it as the carrier has announced that it will sunset both its 2G and 3G CDMA networks by 2021; the early warning is meant more for M2M than for consumers...

And mind you, LTE as we now have it, will be 2G by then easily.

He does not have to give ten years warning to shut down 2G and 3G, I am wishing he will shut them down when they finish 4G LTE with voLTE in 2013 and expand LTE Advance next , that's the best plan than he said above.

HSPA is not 4g, regardless of the brainwashing AT&T tries to fool you.
