They still need to upgrade service, forget buying other companies, upgrade towers that have ONLY edge service to at least 3G!
That's exactly what they're doing.
It's not about shutting down 2G.
It's about taking existing towers and spectrum, and upgrading them to 3G and 4G. It's difficult to run separate 2G and 3G and 4G networks at the same time, in the same area. There's only so much spectrum, and splitting it three ways is inefficient and inflexible. So in dense areas where they currently run all three networks, they're shutting down 2G to make more room for 3G and 4G.
Therefore this simply doesn't apply to areas that only have 2G.
