It was way back in 2014 we announced that Telstra would be shelving its 2G network by 2017, and just ahead of time, the day has finally come.

The 900 MHz mobile network was switched off today, so if you or a loved one have a 2G SIM card, Mobile Handheld, Mobile Broadband, Tablets or wireless Machine-to-Machine (M2M) device it won't work on Telstra's network anymore. You won't be able to make or receive voice calls or SMS, access voicemail or use data services.
