    T-Mobile 3G is finally turned off in Eastern Massachusetts

    T-Mobile 3G has been shut down in Eastern Massachusetts (at least, in my area) last night.

    Non-VoLTE phones still connected to LTE but in case of call they switch directly to 2G during the call.

    2G network of T-Mobile does not provide internet connectivity: at least I am not able to load any web site while connected to 2G (not during the call). Voice and Text still work on T-Mobile 2G.

    3G is still up and running in SoCal. MA is a relatively small state, but this good. You won't get 2G data while in a call.
    I didn't pick (didn't try actually) 3g in MA/NH or ME this summer ME was 5G, 4G LTE or roaming. I suspect, given the B71 deployments in ME, that meant if I couldn't get B71, I wouldn't be getting 2G either.
    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    Even while not in call, data does not work on 2G.

    My iPhone locked onto 3G briefly in Denver before finding 5G like two seconds later.
