AT&T Mexico switches off legacy Iusacell CDMA network, report says

22 Sep 2016

AT&T Mexico switched off the legacy CDMA network inherited via its acquisition of Iusacell on 20 September, El Financiero has reported, citing the company’s corporate communications director Manuel Gonzalez Arce. The executive noted that ‘very few’ subscribers were still connected via the CDMA network at that date, and AT&T staff have worked to ensure that they have been advised on how to migrate to a 4G LTE-capable device. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Iusacell’s original CDMA network was switched on in the first quarter of 1998.
