The Long Goodbye: 2G/3G Network Retirement and IDC's European Mobile Forecasts

By: John DelaneyAssociate Vice President, European Mobility


This IDC Market Note describes and explains the scenario of shutting down legacy networks (2G/3G), which we have adopted for the latest edition of our mobile market forecasts for Western Europe, as published in the EMEA Telecoms Services Database. "For some operators, during the next five years, there will come a time when it makes sense to shut down one of these legacy networks altogether," said John Delaney, associate vice president, IDC European Mobility.
