5G on Digital Water Horizon as Sun Sets on 2G, 3G

11 September 2019
Research Note

On 31 December 2019, U.S. cellular carrier Verizon Wireless will sunset its national 2G and 3G networks to free up bandwidth for its nascent 5G network. Verizon will cease to support its 2G and 3G network infrastructure after this date, and legacy network performance will begin to decline. This phaseout facilitates the reallocation of spectrum to its 4G and 5G networks.

In this Research Note, Bluefield analyzes:

  • Cellular carriers’ 2G/3G phaseout & 5G launch timelines
  • 5G’s transformative long-term potential for digital water
  • Service-based digital water business models
