T-Mobile US eyes October 2021 W-CDMA shutdown

10 Aug 2021

T-Mobile US is on course to shut down its W-CDMA networks by October 2021, rather than the April 2022 deadline previously stated. The date was reported by tech blog The T-Mo Report, which cites internal employee documentation.

TeleGeography notes that T-Mobile’s 2G GSM network is scheduled for shutdown on 31 December 2022, while the legacy Sprint networks acquired in the April 2020 mega-merger will be deactivated on 1 January 2022 (CDMA) and 30 June 2022 (LTE).
