Metro by T-Mobile Services Add-ons
Metro by T-Mobile (formerly known as MetroPCS) is an MVNO that operates on parent company T-Mobile’s network. Because it’s a smaller mobile provider, Metro doesn’t have the same overhead as the larger companies, so it’s able to pass on more significant savings to customers, while offering similar perks and great service.
Service add-ons are account features that can be added to your current Metro by T-Mobile plan for an additional fee. Common add-ons include international calling, mobile data, hotspot data, and security features.
Metro Data Add-Ons
If you need more recurring 4G LTE data added to your Metro account, you can do so for an additional fee. All added data is hotspot enabled.

Staying connected abroad is affordable via Metro by T-Mobile’s international add-ons. All international add-ons require a plan minimum, which varies by add-on type. Some international add-ons also allow you to call overseas while you’re in the U.S., making it more affordable to stay connected to your family and friends.
