While an RVer or boater may be considered retired because they are no longer working - when an internet provider uses the term 'retired' it generally means a plan or device they previously offered is no longer available to new customers.
And that's how we use the term here when talking about plans and devices.
Most often, those who had a plan that is now retired is grandfathered in - meaning they get to keep their plan, features and pricing for as long as they keep paying the bill.
Sometimes grandfathered in plans can be transferred to other customers, but this is carrier and plan dependent.
