Vodafone UK retires 3G across the UK

Vodafone UK is repurposing its final 3G radio frequencies to strengthen 4G and 5G services.

The process of retiring 3G began with a customer awareness campaign which started in January 2022. 

The 3G switch off is part of a wider network modernisation programme which includes the rollout of faster 5G and 4G services to more locations across the UK.

Vodafone’s UK Network Director, Andrea Dona, said: “The 3G legacy switch off has been a massive programme.

With switch off complete, we can start to redeploy the remaining spectrum which will ultimately lead to stronger and faster 4G and 5G across the UK. “
