Verizon Wireless today clarified statements made by an employee about its CDMA network. Speaking to FierceWireless on Wednesday, Verizon's VP of M2M Global Strategy Aparna Khurjekar said Verizon plans to sunset its 2G/3G CDMA network by 2021. However, this is not a solid date. "The date Aparna referenced while talking to you is a guideline that we are providing customers who have to plan, fund and transition large enterprise projects to the faster speed networks," said Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney on Thursday. "The Verizon Wireless 2G and 3G networks will be available as long as necessary to support customers who may have mission critical projects on those networks. We haven't made a sunset decision like our competitors." Verizon does want to continue to move customers from its CDMA network to its LTE network, but understands that the transition will take many years.
