Singapore mobile operators to cease 2G services from April 2017

M1, Singtel and StarHub will cease the provision of all 2G services (voice, messaging, and data services) in Singapore with effect from April 1, 2017.

In the last few years, mobile operators have been conducting outreach programmes to encourage customers to migrate to newer networks. Today, the majority of mobile customers are on 3G and 4G networks and only an extremely small percentage of customers remain on 2G-only mobile devices.

The spectrum currently used for 2G will be used to provide faster and more advanced 3G and 4G services, said the three mobile operators.
