T-Mobile Austria does not plan switching off 2G

Wednesday 1 March 2017 | 10:59 CET | News
According to T-Mobile Austria's CTO Rudiger Koster, the switch-off of 2G network is not on the order of the day, reports Der Standard. It is even probable that the 3G (UMTS) network will be switched off rather than its predecessor. The reason is that there are still many old phones being used and many M2M applications rely on GSM. As regards 5G, that start of operation in Austria could be as early as 2020.
