MetroPCS is now Metro by T-Mobile

Posted under: Metro PCS and T-Mobile

MetroPCS has now officially been re-branded underneath the T-Mobile Wireless umbrella after being acquired by T-Mobile on May 1, 2013. Metro was originally founded in 1994 as General Wireless, Inc., but has evolved over the last 24 years into one of the top 10 cell service carriers in the United States. Metro has excelled in covering the prepaid wireless market, but is now pushing into bigger markets with the backing of T-Mobile. They have announced 2 new Unlimited Plans, which start at $50/mo and $60/mo per line, which also have some great new benefits. Both of these plans come with 100GB of Google Cloud storage included, but the $60/mo plan also includes Amazon Prime. ($119 per year value)

Metro Wireless Plan Features

Metro - $50/mo Plan

  • 1 Line - $50/mo
  • 2 Lines - $80/mo
  • 3 Lines - $140/mo
  • LTE Data - Unlimited
  • Mobile Hotspot - 5GB LTE
  • Taxes and Fees - Included
  • Cloud Storage - 100GB Google Cloud
  • Amazon Prime - Not Included

Metro - $60/mo Plan

  • 1 Line - $60/mo
  • 2 Lines - $90/mo
  • 3 Lines - $150/mo
  • LTE Data - Unlimited
  • Mobile Hotspot - 15GB LTE
  • Taxes and Fees - Included
  • Cloud Storage - 100GB Google Cloud
  • Amazon Prime - Included

The only real difference in the network quality or service on these new plans from Metro versus their parent T-Mobile is video streaming and data throttling. Metro customers are limited to a 480p video resolution for streaming video and can be throttled after passing 35GB of data in a month.
