I think it could work

Metro customers will just be transferred to T-Mo's "Monthly 4G" plan. The only issue would be the CDMA network. They would have to figure out whether or not they want to keep it running or how long they want to give those customers a so-called grace period before shutting it down. If they actually want to shut it down to begin with. Will it be expensive to convert the CDMA network over to LTE or HSPA+

Advantages to this is that T-Mo would get a headstart on LTE which would be great and acquire some AWS spectrum in the process. It could work but it's tricky.
