South African Govt. to Shut Down 2G and 3G Networks by 2025

South African Government has announced its intentions to shut down the 2G and 3G networks in their country.

In a recent announcement, the South African government has proposed a roadmap to shut down the 2G and 3G Networks in the country by 2025.

Radio frequency spectrum is a finite natural resource that is vital to the growth of South Africa’s digital economy and communication infrastructure. The proposed policy intends to support the spectrum allocation and licensing for fixed mobile, broadcasting; aeronautical and marine; research and development; community access; and other relevant industries.

The policy also seeks to promote equity and fair allocation to contribute towards the transformation of the sector and accessibility of digital connectivity even in outlying parts of the country.
