Ovum - Apr 28, 2015 - Ovum: 2G/3G networks won’t close en masse until 2020

LTE’s appeal and increased affordability means operators in developed markets have to refarm GSM or CDMA spectrum to accommodate this demand. The next step is to close down these legacy networks, but determining the “sweet spot” for network closure is challenging, according to a new report* by global research firm, Ovum.

“For operators in transition, there are key revenues – M2M, voice and roaming – that need to be considered in the trade-off when determining the optimal time to close the network,” said Ovum principal analyst, Nicole McCormick. “The amount of 2G, 3G, and LTE spectrum an operator has can also affect timing.”
