Lets just clarify this message.

 

Is it...

 

No, the 2G/3D network is not shutting down,

 

OR

 

No, you won't tell them that you are shutting them down.

2G will be live until atleast 2025. Longer term, my guess is it will ultimately be shutdown. You should get some life out of 2G kit for a while yet, but it would be prudent to have an upgrade path in mind for the future.

Vodafone plans to shut down 2G networks in 2025. I don't think 3G is going to be shut down in New Zealand anytime soon. Vodafone 3G won't go until at least 2035 I think. When 5G becomes standard (around 2025ish) other providers may think about shutting down 3G - not until at least 2030. Rural areas still rely on 3G these days.

 

Other countries are planning to shut down 3G and some already have.

The only thing keeping the 2G network live is the GPRS power meters
