For the less than one percent of customers still using 3G, 2G will be used for voice calls and SMS. This network will remain fully operational and its coverage will be much wider than the 3G network. Customers who have used the 3G network in addition to data transfers will find more information about moving to LTE on the operator’s website. “Our customers will not feel the passive downtime of 3G, because LTE (4G) has long taken its role. However, for operators, the 2,100MHz band release is very important for the further development of the cutting-edge high-speed 5G network,says Zdeněk Bumbálek, Director of INS and Fix Product Management at T-Mobile Czech Republic.
