So Verizon plans to turn off 3G by 2021. When is Sprint going to turn off their 3G? Personally I think 2021 is too late. Verizon can turn it off in 2016 or a little later. They have good LTE coverage and their LTE will cover all of the 3G areas pretty soon. The only reason to do it that late is to give people enough time to switch their devices to new LTE capable devices. There are also the cellular units for security systems. Those can also be switched out in a couple years. What else is 3G used for? Once 3G is shutdown, that spectrum can be used for LTE, so that would allow for more bandwidth.
AT&T is making it known that it is going to try to capitalize on Sprint's iDEN shutdown over the next year. http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pid=22974&cdvn=news&newsarticleid=34695&mapcode=consumer|enterprise AJ
