3G network: Iliad goes against the tide and finds another fate in the old network

Iliad, the beloved telecommunications provider, continues to stand out for a variety of causes. Unlike Vodafone and TIM, this network will remain active for a long time. Here’s what the third-generation network will become.

In 2021, the 3G network becomes increasingly congested for most telephone providers, who are attempting to remove it from circulation in whatever manner they can. Except for Iliad. At least for the time being. The corporation that, with its set pricing, encourages its clients to have complete confidence in it, behaves in a unique manner once again. It’s no surprise, given that it’s always focused on low-cost flights while still promising a slew of new offerings to all of its customers. In reality, it will soon activate the first optical fiber tariffs, although it is still working on 5G mobile telephony networks in the background.

Iliad has decided to retain the 3G network for the time being.


Iliad, as well as other operators, are undergoing trials in 20 different national capitals. It will, of course, not end there, but will aim to extend the 3G network in a number of other cities. Iliad intends to hit 2022 with the fifth generation lines covering a wide portion of the country.

That is to say, say farewell to the 3G network. On the other side, nail pushes nail, and Iliad has included the demise of the 3G network as an alternative.

Vodafone, on the other hand, is now taking steps, excluding the outdated and expensive third-generation network from its tariffs and planning to shut it down by the autumn.

Iliad, on the other hand, has chosen a different path: it currently plans to retain it (unlike Vodafone and TIM) in order to continue to benefit from its uniform coverage across the country.
