TDC plans to start phasing out 3G by end-2022.

Wednesday 9 December 2020 | 14:18 CET | News
Danish operator TDC said its infrastructure arm, TDC Net, has begun plans to phase out its 3G network in order to release capacity for faster 4G and 5G mobile services. Mobile traffic has been rising by between 35 percent and 40 percent annually in recent years, it said. The 3G network shut-down will be done gradually, starting by the end of 2022, giving customers at least two years to consider buying a more modern phone.
