3G Microcell still working?

I got up to my remote location with my new 4g LTE femtocell in tow only to find my 3g microcell that was there still functioning. I made a couple calls on it.

When are these slated to shut off? I thought it was the 22nd of Feb?

@73blazer  Feb. 22nd was the hard date for aggressively shutting down the 3G network. It's not as simple as flipping a switch so there will probably be some service areas that may take a bit longer to be shutdown. I do know that all of the service areas are now fully operational for the Cell Booster and AT&T's post-3G requirements.
