2G Networks are Switching Off

Optus will start switching off its 2G mobile network from April 2017 and  Vodafone's 2G network will turn off in September 2017. Telstra already shut down its 2G mobile network at the end of 2016. The Optus 2G network in WA and NT will switch off on 3 April 2017 and in SA, QLD, VIC, NSW, TAS and ACT it will switch off on 1 August 2017. Most 2G customers will need to either upgrade their SIM or handset to continue to receive service. Contact your service provider to find out what your options are. While some customers may be happy to upgrade to smartphone, others may prefer to stick with a more straightforward phone just for text and voice. Service providers have a wide range of handsets available and can help affected customers decide what would suit them best.  If you do decide to upgrade to a smartphone - make sure you do your research first to work out what phone and plan will best suit your needs.
