Macau's telecoms regulator, the DSRT has delayed the shut down of the country's GSM networks until the end of the year.
The regulator had planned to allow the mobile networks to shut-down their GSM networks next month, but said in a statement that public complaints had caused it to rethink the plans.
At the end of May, the regulator said that there were still 30,000 GSM subscribers, despite the shut-down plans having been advertised since the beginning of this year.
There has also however been concerns about network reliability following some recent network outages, so consumers are reportedly wary of plans to shut-down the "backup" network.
