Metro is in Phase 2 of their LTE build out. Phase 1 was to get LTE transmitters on the 100 most-used cell towers in each of their 14 markets, so they could claim they had LTE network in each market. (Yeah, this meant you could buy the $400 Indulge and never connect to LTE. )

So, if you currently get a Metro 1x RTT CDMA signal, you should soon get LTE signal. And by "soon", should be within the next 5 months -- Metro says. We know they are working on it.
Looking at the map for where I live in metro Atlanta area, I am just inside the LTE coverage dark purple. Looks like it extends another 10 miles north, but I mostly go south. I'm definitely getting the LTE LG Esteem in September!
Your creed may be interesting, but your deeds are much more convincing.
