Macau regulator postpones termination of 2G services again

Monday 26 November 2012 | 00:05 CET | News
Macau's Bureau of Telecommunication Regulation (DSRT) has again delayed the switchover to 3G. The 2G services will now not be terminated until 4 June 2015. Originally, CTM, Hutchison Telephone Macau, and Smartone Mobile Communications were going to end their 2G services on 8 July 2012, this was then pushed back until 31 December as there were still many 2G subscribers. The regulator said that end-users needed more time to become familiar with 3G and that it still needs more time to study a time-table for 4G services and that it had thus decided to push back the cessation of 2G services.
