And some have on channel DAB repeaters also..


So, portable DAB radios are a thing now?


You just need a backpack for the batteries! :-)

I would have thought that it would be more likely that 3G would expire
as we move into 5G than 2G. The object of the exercise of 3G was to
allow faster data, but that is with us now with 4G and will be moreso
with 5G, plus the wide area frequencies for 3G (around 2110MHz) don't
get as far as 800MHz and 700MHz that will likely be used for 4/5G.


True 5G needs many more masts and will use higher frequencies where
there is more bandwidth available. You can't get much more out of those
lower frequencies than 4G achieves.


Remember also that not only does not everyone have or want a
smartphone or the complexities of using such, but per your initial
query that 2G is used for many other purposes than just speech and
text.

I wouldn't worry about it.
