According to an official China Unicom report, China Unicom’s Fujian Company and Henan Xinxiang Branch will soon start the demolition and shutdown of 2G and other old equipment in the region’s mobile network.
In fact, the China Unicom Guangzhou Branch has started work on removing 2G equipment and returning to the network as early as the beginning of April. This is fairly surprising considering how there are still a large amount of people who use 2G networks in China.
Based on the current proportion of mobile phone users of the three major operators, it’s estimated that China Unicom’s number of 2G users on the network is approximately 51.5 million.
There is a lot of discussion on the network about operators stopping 2G and 3G network services.
We hope that the operators can fully consider the immediate interests of the existing users and help these users migrate by providing various preferential schemes.
