MetroPCS has announced a significant new upgrade to their existing unlimited plans for those who can’t stand getting knocked down to 3G speeds after using up a small pool of data. Here’s a rundown of the company’s newest options:
- $40/month for unlimited data, talk and text + 2GB of high-speed data at up to 4G LTE speeds (up from 1GB)
- $50/month for unlimited data, talk and text + 4GB of high-speed data at up to 4G LTE speeds (up from 3GB)
- $60/month for unlimited 4G LTE data, talk and text
That last one is the juiciest, obviously, and there’s a bonus if you sign up for the plan with a MetroPCS-made 4G LTE phone: you can get it for $10 less. This would be the permanent price until you ditch the plan, too, so there’s no worrying about price hikes at some point down the line. The only catch aside from owning the right hardware is that you’ll have to sign up by April 5th.
MetroPCS isn’t the first carrier everyone thinks about when looking for reliable service, but now that they’re linked up with T-Mobile it’s not a bad route for value-added plans. Sounds like the company is trying to shake things up in the prepaid arena just as much as T-Mobile is in postpaid. Be sure to stop by a store or head to the company’s website if you’re interested.
