  • 2G network

    I was reading a article that stated:
    Despite having a number of new features, the new Nokia 3310 still only runs on a 2G network.

    According to the specifications listed on the Nokia website, the new phone will only be able to function on standard GSM frequencies between 900 MHz and 1800 MHz.

    And that could prove to be a problem.

    A number of countries are looking to switch off their 2G networks in the coming years.

    It turns out, 2G networks are pretty old. The frequency was first used in the 1990s, and was the first to digitise mobile phone transmissions protecting your data and ensuring that only the intended recipient could receive it.

    It was also 2G that introduced the ability to send SMS texts for the first time.

    For example, Australian telecom Telstra shut down its 2G network back in December 2016. And the Australian arm of Vodafone is planning to ditch its 2G later this year.

    Here's a full list of 2G networks and when they will shutdown.
