T-Mobile Low Rent 3G Shut Down Scolded

This MIGHT qualify as local biz news even if T-Mobile isn't really a Kansas City company.

However, the telcom flex is worth considering if only because planned obsolescence is now part of corporate design practices and increasing revenue.

Translation: More people are selling junk and that's why consumers shouldn't feel too guilty about continued layoffs.

Dish is begging authorities for help with T-Mobile's CDMA shutdown looming

Dish Network, which owns Boost Mobile, warns that it may not be able to migrate millions of customers ahead of T-Mobile's planned 3G CDMA shutdown in January 2022. Boost serves 9 million customers, more than half of which rely on the older 3G network.

    Planned obsolescence? I have to disagree with you there. 3G cellular networks are twenty years old and use technical standards which were drafted almost FORTY years ago. In telecommunication terms that's not a dinosaur, it's a fossil.

    Twenty years ago you were probably using a dial-up ISP for your Internet access. Are you upset because you can't use your old v.90 modem to connect like you did back then? This is no different.
