MetroPCS brand has added more data to two monthly plans and has also expanded MetroPCS availability to ten more markets.
The plan changes are:
- The $40/month plan's high speed data allowance is increasing from 500MB to 1 GB.
- The $50/month plan gets its high sped data bumped up from 2.5GB to 3GB.
Customers will get the increased data automatically with no action required on their part. In a dig at Sprint's Boost Mobile, which is requiring current customers to request to be switched to Boost's new plans that include more data for less, T-Mobile says "...unlike with other wireless providers who make their customers jump through hoops or opt-in to get their latest deals, MetroPCS isn’t asking customers to lift a finger. The new high speed data just shows up automatically. There’s no extra cost, no additional paperwork and no hoops required".
The new MetroPCS markets are:
- Chattanooga, TN
- Chicago, IL
- Kansas City, MO
- Milwaukee, WI
- Minneapolis-St.Paul, MN
- Norfolk-Portsmouth-Newport News, VA
- Richmond-Petersburg, VA
- Salt Lake City, UT
- St. Louis, MO
- Yakima-Pasco-Richland-Kennewick, WA
T-Mobile has been continuously expanding MetroPCS availability, growing it from 15 metropolitan areas at the time of T-Mobile's acquisition of MetroPCS in May, 2013, to 55 metropolitan areas today.
