On April 12, China Unicom announced today that a provincial company of China Unicom is carrying out the 2G base station frequency reduction and back off service switching activity, and plans to close 101 low traffic base stations. It seems that many old people are still using 2G network signals. In order not to affect their future life, it's better to change 4G card as soon as possible.
In order to develop 4G, China Unicom began to accelerate the withdrawal of 2G. According to reports, at the end of January this year, China Unicom began to actively deploy 2G network service withdrawal in many provinces, and asked the market line to prohibit the development of 2G business.
Recently, China Unicom has actively deployed 2G network out of service work in many provinces, and asked the market line to prohibit the development of 2G business. According to internal news, at present, the proportion of China Unicom's 2G customers is about 2% of the total number of customers. By the end of 2017, the total number of China Unicom's users reached 280 million. At present, the number of 2G customers is about 5 million. Once the 2G of China Unicom is fully out of service, 5 million users will not be able to make calls.
At the same time, China Mobile has also shut down 3G networks in some areas.
