T-Mobile Netherlands said it will stop supporting 2G for consumers from 1 June 2021. From that date, customers with mobile phones using only 2G will have to switch to one that supports 3G, 4G or 5G. From June 2023, support will also end for other devices that solely use 2G, namely machine-to-machine (M2M) devices used by business customers. Customers will be informed about the changes in the run-up to the phase-out.
