Only people interested in the intricate technical aspects care about it being VoLTE, and frankly those people are about as far from MetroPCS's target customer as you can get.
Like you said, VoLTE is bringing Metro's LTE network to its knees because of the lack of spectrum. For 99.999% of Metro's customers; getting a new phone, having a larger native network with full speed data access, having their data speeds increase dramatically, and have a much larger roaming network; will be considered a huge improvement. Not only would that 99.999% not care one bit that they are no longer using VoLTE for their voice calls, for them the change over couldn't come fastest enough. Those customers will be pushing Metro to make changes much faster than 2015.
