Metro by T-Mobile Plans
Formerly known as MetroPCS, Metro by T-Mobile is an MVNO that offers service on T-Mobile’s nationwide LTE network. With attractive pricing, robust unlimited options, and affordable add-ons, there are lots of reasons to consider a plan from Metro. Plus, the backing of T-Mobile’s nationwide network means you can expect reliable coverage anywhere you roam.
Metro Plans: Unlimited
Metro by T-Mobile offers a two affordable unlimited plans, both of which include features and perks that you typically find in more expensive postpaid plans.
|$50 Unlimited||$60 Unlimited|
|Data Deprioritization||Over 35GB/month||Over 35GB/month|
|Mobile Hotspot||5GB 4G LTE||15GB 4G LTE|
|Mexico & Canada||Add-on only||Add-on only|
|International Calling||Add-on only||Add-on only|
|Extras||100GB Google One storage||100GB Google One storage|
Both of Metro’s unlimited plans include a mobile hotspot allowance, 100GB of Google One storage, and a high 35GB data deprioritization threshold. The more expensive of the two gives you a bigger hotspot allowance (15GB) and an Amazon Prime membership.
Though the unlimited plans don’t include international talk and text, you have the option of adding them on for a relatively cheap monthly price. All plans come with Metro’s Scam ID and Scam Block protection service, so you can identify and prevent those pesky robocalls.
Metro Plans: Limited Data
Don’t need unlimited data? Lower your monthly cost with one of Metro by T-Mobile’s plans with limited data and choose the amount of data you want each month. Once you reach your 4G LTE data cap, your speeds will slow down (though you can also add an extra data package to get you through the rest of the month). Metro’s 10GB data plan also includes Music Unlimited streaming access. Like its unlimited plans, Metro by T-Mobile’s limited data plans include scam protection against spoofed and hijacked numbers.
Metro Family Plans
Metro by T-Mobile makes it easy to turn one of its prepaid plans into a family affair. You can add up to five lines to either of its unlimited data plans, as well as the 10GB limited data plan, and enjoy increased savings with each line you add.
|10GB Data Plan||$50 Unlimited Data Plan||$60 Unlimited Data Plan|
|Savings per line||$10||$20||$30+|
The top-tier unlimited plan also offers an added multi-line bonus: You’ll get four lines for the price of three. Metro often offers additional limited-time multi-line deals, so check back to see if you can switch your plan and save.
