Verizon’s 3G network is sticking around — at least for now
With how much Verizon has been hyping its 5G capabilities of late, some might be surprised to learn that the carrier’s 3G network is still in operation. And what might be even more surprising is that, despite past statements about scheduling a shutdown, Verizon is now saying it has no pending plans to retire 3G.
In a statement shared with Light Reading, Verizon spokesperson Kevin King said the company’s 3G network remains in operation and that there is no “plan to shut it down at this time.”
