Telenet switches off 3G in 2024

Telenet/BASE will switch off the 3G signal on its mobile network in two years from September 2024. The vast majority of mobile devices are already using the newer 4G or 5G technology to make calls and use the internet.

3G was launched in Belgium in 2004. It was the successor to 2G and allowed users to use the internet outside the home with a higher network speed for the first time.

Mobile data usage is increasing by 30 percent every year. By freeing up the network capacity of the older 3G signal and using it for 4G and 5G, Telenet can offer its customers more capacity, stability and higher speeds.

Calling and internet over 3G will still be possible until September 2024. From then on, Telenet/BASE will phase out this technology. Old phones or tablets that can’t handle 4G will use the 2G signal.
