For the GPS industry may also have some impact, but Mictrack has released the 4G GPS tracker MT600 suppport 4G & 2G

it is so interrsting for such a decision to phase out the 3G. I beleive it is wise since 4G is an evolvef technology to 3G in terms of speed. The only concern is related to the CSFB which needs to be managed and optimized between the 4G & 2G.
