Global 2G Network Shutdown : The Rapid Decline of the 2G Technology

Globally, cellular networks are constantly evolving with customers looking for advanced digital services. Wireless technologies have evolved from 2nd generation to 4th generation and now global standards are being developed for 5th generation. Operators across the globe are witnessing majority of their customers utilizing 3rd and 4th generation of mobile technologies and only a minority using 2nd generation. The study focuses on operators that have either shut down or are in the process of shutting down their 2nd generation networks and discusses how they are migrating their customers to 3rd or 4th generation of wireless networks.

Key Findings

It is expected that by 2020, less than % of global mobile subscription will be for 2G largely due to the rapid rise in mobile data demand.
-The tenfold increase in mobile data traffic from 2010–2014 drove operators to invest into more advanced networks.
-Smartphone sales have quadrupled since 2010, contributing largely to the growth in global mobile data traffic and revenue.
-2G mobile subscription has been on the decline and is expected to only hold a modicum of the entire mobile services market share by technology, in 2020.
-Several operators around the globe have shut down or are currently in the process of shutting down their 2G networks.
-4G subscription has been increasing in the US mobile services market since 2010, driven by the consumers’ need for higher speed and faster networks.
-Sprint completed the shutdown of its 2G network in 2013, while AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon are in the process of shutting down their 2G networks.
