MetroPCS today announced new prepaid LTE plans. The plans start at $40 per month, with unlimited nationwide talk, text and Web browsing. According to a press release, the $50 and $60 service plans offer more data access.
The new $40 service plan offers unlimited talk, text and 4G Web browsing with unlimited YouTube access. The $50 service plan includes international and premium text messaging, turn-by-turn navigation with MetroNavigator, as well as ScreenIT, mobile instant messaging, corporate e-mail and 1 GB of additional data access, with premium features available through MetroStudio when connected via Wi-Fi, including audio capabilities to listen and download music and access to preview and trial video content.
The $60 service plan provides the same features as the $50 plan, plus unlimited data access and MetroStudio premium content such as 18 video-on-demand channels and audio downloads.
“Our customers told us they wanted more video, more sharing of their content and more Web browsing capabilities – they want to have it all with the value and no annual contract that only MetroPCS can deliver,” said Roger D. Linquist, president, CEO and chairman of MetroPCS, in a press release.
The new LTE rate plans are available in the nine metropolitan areas where MetroPCS currently offers 4G LTE services, including Boston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Sacramento and San Francisco. The company says it has plans to expand its LTE services into more metropolitan areas in 2011, including Atlanta, Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando and Tampa.
