With a reasonably fast LTE network and roaming agreements that cover over 90% of the US population people should really start to consider the money they're pouring down the drain at the major carriers. For me the math is simple. Metro works well in Metro markets and roaming coverage is acceptable. Figure in that with taxes and fees my $50 plan would cost $115 at any other carrier, that's $780 in my pocket every year. The best part? If I want to leave I just port my number and go.

End result of that is when the Big 3 start bleeding money because of lost customer base, the roaming agreements will cost the other carriers more to replace revenue to maintain the infrastructure.
The mvno's will suffer also as the revenue base for the Big 3 diminishes.
