KISSMobile is thrilled to announce that Vodafone has an update with the 2G network being extended. From the initial advisory that it will shutdown 2G on 30 September 2017, Vodafone decided to extend and reschedule the decommission of its legacy 2G Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) network on 31 March 2018.
Vodafone first launched its 2G services in 1993. Fast forward to 2016, Vodafone’s 4G network today carries close to 80 percent of the company’s total data traffic. Its 2G service now carries less than one percent of the company’s data traffic, and around two percent of its voice traffic.
As our network provider, we are proudly in esteem to share you this news about 2G. It's network that now covers more than 22 million Australians.
Vodafone will be the last network operator to close its 2G network. Telstra had closed its 2G network last December 2016 and Optus last April 2017.
