T-Mobile Netherlands delays consumer 2G shutdown to Jun-21; M2M 2G continues to Jun-23

19 Oct 2020

T-Mobile Netherlands has set a new date of 1 June 2021 to stop supporting 2G GSM for consumer mobile services, extending a previous proposed deadline of 15 November 2020. Seeking to free up resources for 4G/5G services, from June 2021 users with 2G-only mobile phones must switch to devices with 3G, 4G or 5G capabilities. However, the operator will keep the 2G network active to support machine-to-machine (M2M) devices for business customers until 1 June 2023.
