MetroPCS offers truly unlimited talk, text, and 4G data for $50, period
Earlier this morning, T-Mobile announced that its wholly-owned prepaid subsidiary, MetroPCS, is launching a new truly unlimited data plan for only $50/month, period – that includes all taxes and fees. It will include unlimited talk and text, and unthrottled access to LTE with no bandwidth or download caps. In essence, it matches T-Mobile’s promotional 2-line family plan, which costs $100 for the same thing – except MetroPCS is making this pricing available to single-line subscribers. (If you have more than one line, you will also be eligible for a discount, in essence making this plan only $45/month.)
The only catch? You have to buy an LTE phone from MetroPCS. It’s not available with the prepaid carrier’s CDMA service, and it’s also not available if you bring your own device, like a Nexus.
The carrier is also adding 1GB of data to its other plan options, which means the $40 plan will now include 2GB of data, and the $50 plan will now include 4GB of data. (The unlimited plan will go up to $60 after April 5.)
