3G phone in a 4g area

I have an older 3G only phone, which I wish to carry on outback trips for emergency use. I would like to put a prepaid SIM card in it, but I’m concerned that some of the newer coverage towns may be 4g only. Is that so? Are there areas which are 4g in which a 3G phone won’t work?

thanks.

Re: 3G phone in a 4g area

The coverage map on the link below may help with that. I just tried my old iPhone 4 because it's 3G and the map returned results that are all 3G. Keep in mind that this only a rough guide.
