AT&T has said that only 12% of contract customers, roughly 8.4 million people, are still using 2G handsets. AT&T has decided that it will not sell 2G handsets to its contract or prepaid customers anymore.

The telecom service provider said, “We expect to fully discontinue service on our 2G networks by approximately January 1, 2017. Throughout this multi-year upgrade process, we will work proactively with our customers to manage the process of moving to 3G and 4G devices, which will help minimize customer churn. As of June 30, 2012, approximately 12 percent of our postpaid customers were using 2G handsets. We do not expect this transition to have a material impact on our operating results, but will continue to evaluate the financial impact of transitioning customers from 2G devices to 3G or 4G devices.”
