Metro is not an MVNO and the vast majority of traffic is handled by their network.

I did not say that Metro is an mvno.
What I pointed out, if you read my post is, if too many subscribers bleed away to companies such as Metro and the mnvos, the costs will go up for the Metro's and the mnvos.

Metro depends on roaming agreements outside the greater metropolitian areas.
Great for people who don't travel, but if you do, and the roaming agreement prices go up because of lost revenue, then Metro and the mvnos will suffer and their costs will go up.

It's really a simple concept. If you bleed too many cust off of the Big 3, they will have to raise roaming agreement prices and network access by mvnos to replace the revenue in order to maintain the infrastructure.
