The 3G network will stay up until Mach 31, 2022, T-Mobile said in a press release Friday. The company says the three-month extension is due to some of its partners that “haven’t followed through on their responsibility to help their customers through this shift.”

There were no specifics provided on which partner, but in recent months, Dish has taken issue with the Jan. 1 deadline.

The company said Boost customers could lose their service on that date, and Dish chairman, Charlie Ergen, said T-Mobile has “become the Grinch.”
