This piece of news may not be welcome for those owning the original iPhone or the BlackBerry Pearl. AT&T has confirmed that it has indeed discontinued its 2G services as of January 1st of this year. To its credit, the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States did promise more than four years ago that it would do so. Well now, it has been made official.
Since Verizon Wireless activated its 4G service back in 2010, it has already launched a couple of distinct LTE networks. But now, it looks like the carrier is preparing to launch a third one.
While the first two LTE networks are utilizing virgin airwaves, the new network will instead be making use of the Verizon's old CDMA EV-DO systems for PCS spectrum. This could mean the slow and inevitable extinction of 3G.
