AT&T: Shutting Down 3G Network by 2022

at&t-3g-network-ending-2022
As more and more carriers get ready to adapt to new technologies, they also bring about some changes along the way.

This year, Sprint has already announced that they will be ending support for 3G device activations across its network after April 30. Following the announcement, AT&T reported that they will be shifting to an IP-only based network in 2020.

The announcement was shared by a user on Reddit, who disclosed AT&T's plans to end activation on devices that do not support VoLTE or HD Voice after January 1, 2020.

Unfortunately, AT&T shared very little information regarding this decision and did not even disclose how this will affect their customers with a top-of-the-line smartphone that is not supported on Cricket's network. It's possible that they will share more information in due time and will also expand its support for HD Voice.

The wireless provider also plans to shut down its 3G network support for customers by 2022.

  1. It will affect Cricket the exactly same, all Non-HD devices will no longer be able to activate after Jan. 1st 2020, and all devices not using VoLTE/HD Voice will no longer work on the network after Jan. 1st 2022.

    1. They have to allow non-branded At&t/Cricket phone to be able to take advantage of VoLTE or else get fined by FCC or in extreme cases Court

    1. Then you'd have $3, by my estimate!
