Vodafone Germany to stop 3G in June 2021

Thursday 7 May 2020 | 17:07 CET | News
Vodafone Germany said it will stop operating the 3G network on 30 June 2021. The company will gradually reduce the 3G frequency spectrum, while improving capacity for LTE.  This will not have an impact on customers still using 3G, the company said. Customers who use 3G can start to surf on LTE after the shutdown in June, free of charge. Less than 3 percent of Vodafone customers currently use 3G.
