Generally I think 3G doesn’t make a lot of sense. A new platform should be 4G capable. As far as I know 2G is more likely to stay longer than 3G. 
I know already some areas in Germany and Austria where you can find 4G and maybe 2G, but no 3G.

For example seeedstudio retargeted their Rephone 3G module to 4G after some investigations about the future of 3G.

Just my 2 cents
