GPRS / 3G on Blackberry 10 with Activsync

We've been thinking about moving over to Blackberry however, without using the BES10 server and only using Activsync, will the blackberry sync purely over GPRS or does it need a 3G connection. The reason I'm asking is because one of our clients travels a lot and he said that often the 3G is unreliable.

BES5 was perfect as he still got his emails over GPRS. He's only interested in his emails, not web browsing etc
