In August of 2012 AT&T Inc. announced that the shutdown of their second-generation, or “2G”, wireless network will be complete by the end of 2016. AT&T has expressed that their plan is not to shut down the entire network all at once, but rather it will be happening sporadically across our service areas with little to no warning. This process will begin at the end of 2014 and is projected to be completed by December of 2016.
In a process called 2G harvesting, cell service providers are making the 2G frequencies into 3G/4G frequencies. This process will result in the shutting down of the 2G network entirely over time.
In an attempt to stay ahead of the sunset, we are asking that you reach out to us at your earliest convenience so we can discuss your options. Although you may not have experienced any issues with connection yet, the interruption in signal can come without any warning. AT&T has been given the go-head by the FCC to “harvest” their 2G network entirely at their discretion.
