AT&T Sunsetting 2G Services on 1900MHz
Look, let's get serious here, the Edge network is aging and dying, and as people move to 3G and then 4G it will be used less and less until it dries up and becomes a dessicated corpse.
Why would anyone WANT to buy a 2G phone these days anyway?
They haven't set a date certain, and likely WON'T for a while.....but the notice that people should upgrade because obsolete technology will eventually be phased out is a GOOD THING because it m...
I have no idea what the long term plans for the prepaid network might be....but postpaid customers who don't use their phone much will be able to upgrade to 3G or 4G if they want to....if they don't want to and decide to cancel, it probably wouldn't be that big of a financial hit...
Some people left at&t in 2003 when they made the transition to GSM...but it didn't really hurt the bottom line....
Seriously!!! After this and the previous announcement of lowering data cap, the extremely high prices, the poor customer service.... how can anyone remain an at&t customer. Can anyone answer this for me?
Here's a thought.
If you aren't an ATT customer, don't become one if you don't like their service or offers.
If you are an ATT customer in the NY area with a 2g phone and you don't want to upgrade, don't do it. You are out of contract for sure. Find another 2g carrier if you can.
Now if everyone cancels from ATT, then won't we have that dreaded 'monoply' condition that everyone screamed about when they tried to acquire Tmob?
If ATT attempts to acquire another carrier... whoa... ...
There's only so much spectrum. The 3G/4G networks are nearing capacity. The 2G networks are inefficient and taking up valuable spectrum. Be refarming that spectrum for 3G and 4G, everyone is upgraded to a better network that's faster and more efficient, meaning faster data and fewer dropped calls. It's a good thing. More importantly, it's inevitable. Do you really prefer 2G over 3G?
