stc would like to announce the shutdown of our 3G spectrum services during 2022.
As a part of the company’s spectrum management plan, this project has already been rolled out in a few cities around the kingdom and is expected to be finalized during Q4 of 2022.
It is a significant step towards re-directing resources to enhance the 4G/5G user experience within stc network.
As an effort to minimize this step’s effects on the 3G device users, stc will retain its 2G network to allow customers to continue to use Voice and SMS services regardless of the phone they carry (2G/3G or 4G).
However, users who upgrade their 3G devices to 4G/5G enabled devices should experience a more efficient and enjoyable network usability.
