Vodafone NZ to switch off 3G network by end of 2024 =================================================== Vodafone New Zealand intends to have rolled out 4G or 5G to everywhere currently served by 3G by the end of August 2024, at which point it will begin to shut down its legacy 3G network.
Vodafone says the two-year notice period is intended to allow customers enough time to transition to using faster, more reliable services before the legacy 3G network is turned off.
Turning off this network will provide enhanced 4G and 5G experiences for Vodafone's customers by allowing the telco provider to repurpose its 3G spectrum.
Vodafone notes that an increasing number of its customers are already taking advantage of the company's newer network technologies, with 3G data use accounting for less than 5% of total network data traffic, a figure that is rapidly declining year over year.[Moderator snip]
