According to GigaOm, MetroPCS is planning to deploy its future generation Long Term Evolution network some time during 2010. MetroPCS COO Tom Keys told GigaOm, "It is our desire to deploy LTE in 2010, probably the latter half." MetroPCS operates a CDMA network in about a dozen markets right now using its AWS and PCS spectrum holdings. Keys believes MetroPCS' small size will help it to deploy LTE rapidly once it is ready.

What's the point?

What's the point when they don't offer data cards, not even featured phones or smartphones which could benefit the speed that LTE offer.
I would imagine they are planning to expand the services they offer to warrant the upgrade to LTE.

If not, your absolutly right.
