Metro PCS raises data caps and expands to more markets
T-Mobile’s prepaid division, Metro PCS, took steps to align its plans with what T-Mobile itself has been offering consumers for a few months now. As of today, Metro PCS has doubled the high speed data on its entry level $40 plan from 500MB/month to 1GB. Its $50 2.5GB plan is now 3GB.
These plans come with unlimited talk, text, and web, with data slowed after the high speed allotment is reached. Metro PCS’s $60 totally unlimited plan, which includes unlimited, unthrottled data, remains unchanged.
What this means is that prepaid customers can get access to totally unlimited 4G LTE data for at least $20 less than T-Mobile’s current offering (T-Mobile charges $80 for the privilege). Metro PCS also includes all taxes and fees in its pricing, so what you see is what you pay.
Additionally, Metro PCS has expanded its presence into ten more markets:
- Chattanooga, TN
- Chicago, IL
- Kansas City, MO
- Milwaukee, WI
- Minneapolis-St.Paul, MN
- Norfolk-Portsmouth-Newport News, VA
- Richmond-Petersburg, VA
- Salt Lake City, UT
- St. Louis, MO
- Yakima-Pasco-Richland-Kennewick, WA
