Those were the days….

Whether they like it or not, old folks with shaking hands and bad eyesight would have to learn to swipe and touch the screen of their smartphones come 2017.

We could already imagine our grandmother saying: `Aiyah! Kannasai! Sibei Jialat.’

All three telcos in Singapore – M1, Singtel and StarHub – will pull the plug on 2G services from Apr 1, 2017, the companies said in a joint press release.

The reason, according to the telcos is low subscriber base.

Yeah right. 250,000 people who are currently using 2G services who most probably are the elderly and the poor, are considered low.

Most probably because they can’t make much money out of the service.
