3G shutdown deadline extended

Telstra has extended its 3G network closure to give people more time to upgrade their devices.

The scheduled shutdown has been moved from June 30 to August 31. 

An industry-wide change for better connectivity on 4G and 5G networks, the closure of the 3G network will affect devices that rely on 3G for data, and voice calls, including emergency calls to Triple Zero.
