Metro has its pros and cons, but isnt all that bad.
I agree that Metro's target customer base are people with limited money and of any race. But Metro is also picking up customers like myself that can afford paying $100+ for unlimited, but choose not to. I have a Samsung Admire which isn't the fastest phone in the world, but it does have at lease a 800Mhz processor, Android 2.3, and I can tether it on 1x or 3G while using VPN with no known data caps. I get all this for $50 a month and it feels even better that my carrier isn't watching my consumption or deploying software to scan for mobile browser vs. desktop browser.
