..."Verizon runs a 3G, 4G, and now 5G wireless network and has decided to keep running the 3G network, for now. One reason for shutting down their 3G is to get access to the spectrum used to support 3G. The main reason for not shutting down 3G is that it would disconnect a lot of devices, including modems in cars and even some cell phones. The Internet of Things actually started with 3G devices, and these also would be isolated."
