Innovation and changes are a major driver for technology-based industries. Mobile networks are constantly evolving, changing, and innovating in a cyclical movement. An old technology disappears when a new one emerges. Less effective networks have to be decommissioned to allow deployment and success of more effective ones.
The mobile industry is currently experiencing a turn. In 2017, LTE reached its mid-stream and 5G is heating up. 2G networks started to be shutdown in Asia and in the USA. Some European MNOs announced plans to close their old networks and migrate to LTE or 5G.
- What is the rationale behind this?
- Better decommission 2G or 3G first?
In this report, in order to provide a clearer view, we made a bottom-up research on decommissioning announcements and completion dates for a vast number of countries worldwide.
Key Topics Covered:
1. Executive Summary
2. Methodology & definitions
3. A continental drift, or rift?
4. The 2G and 3G Shutdowns: MNOs are divided
5. Country & Player Strategies
- NTT DOCOMO
- Verizon Wireless
