Oni nie mają U900, więc wyłączenie U2100 oznacza koniec 3G, chyba, że ktoś przejdzie do T-Mobile albo KPN.

Vodafone to switch 3G off in the Netherlands from January
Thursday 5 December 2019 | 11:17 CET | News
Vodafone said it will in January stop providing 3G mobile services in the Netherlands. The operator has already largely moved to LTE in the 2100 MHz band, with part of the capacity still reserved for UMTS. The capacity released in the radio network is used for 4G. Vodafone has been informing its -shrinking- group of 4G users about the changes coming up. The company will be keeping 2G in the air for some time still. For competitive reasons, Vodafone will not say how many customers or users still use 3G.
Customers with only a 3G device will still be able to make calls and send text messages over GSM from January, but mobile internet will no longer be possible. Vodafone is advising customers to replace their old mobile phones, saying that, if their Sim card has been around for ten years, it is probably not suitable for 4G. The carrier added that it will exchange those old Sim cards for free.
GSM coverage to remain
With 3G gone, customers will get more and better coverage via 4G, the provider said on its site. “In remote areas you now only sometimes receive 3G. In the new year, mobile internet will get a lot better in such places.”
The coverage of GSM-900 will continue to exist for the time being, for a number of machine-to-machine applications and as a fallback option. For roaming, the Vodafone Group has switched to 4G, so that calls do not drop when mobile phone switch to neighbouring mobile networks.
5G in 2020
For 5G, the schedule is still unknown. The country’s MNOs confirm they are moving forward there, but have not disclosed their strategies. The Dutch government wants to hold the Multiband auction in mid-2020. That auction will likely be the starting signal for the introduction of 5G in the 700 MHz band and possibly other bands.
The entire 2100-MHz band will be redistributed during the auction. In that band, current permits will be migrated to new ones, which means providers will have to relocate. With 4G, this is largely possible via a software update.
