AT&T to Phase Out 2G Support

AT&T plans to phase out its 2G service to support more advanced mobile Internet services on its 3G and 4G networks, the company said in a regulatory filing Friday.

The company said it expected to fully discontinue the service by the end of 2016. It said it would manage the process consistent with previous network upgrades and would "work proactively" to transition customers on a market-by-market basis from GSM and Edge networks (referred to as 2G) to more advanced 3G and 4G.
