What is 3G Sunset?

No, all service providers will be shutting down their 3G networks by the end of 2021.
When is the 3G network shut down happening?
The 3G network will be shut down in phases throughout 2021 and it is targeted to be completed by 31st December 2021. At the same time, the 4G network will be improved and expanded to provide wider coverage and higher data speeds.

How will the 3G Network Sunset affect you as a mobile consumer?
How do I know if I am a 3G network user?
If you’re using a 3G device or if your phone seems only capable of latching onto the 3G network despite using a 4G device. You can also refer to the network indicator icon on your phone. If it indicates 3G most of the time, then you may be a heavy user of the 3G network.
What will I experience if I fail to prepare for the 3G Network Sunset by upgrading to a 4G SIM card and 4G device?
You will not be able to enjoy the best network experience and higher data speeds on our 4G network and your voice and data services might be disrupted.
Why am I always latched on to the 3G network when I am already using a 4G device?
This could be due to currently weak 4G coverage in your area. Don’t worry, your area should be covered under the JENDELA program intended to improve nationwide mobile coverage.
Am I required to change my current SIM Card?
If you are currently using a 4G device but can only access 3G network wherever you go, then it is very likely you are using an older SIM card.
