It looks like T-Mobile's MetroPCS is brewing something up for its customers.

As shared by a Howard Forums member named MrLaserman, a local MetroPCS store gave him a flyer for a mobile hotspot data plan. According to the local store, they can already start offering the plan by Monday, January 22nd.

If this proves to be true, this will be exciting for MetroPCS customers and those who are looking for more options for a mobile hotspot plan. Apart from having more options, MetroPCS levels the field with the price of their mobile hotspot data plan.

The flyer shows that MetroPCS' mobile hotspot data plan is priced at $35 per month and includes 10GB of LTE data. If you require more data, you can top-up your plan with additional data at these prices:


  • 2GB - $5
  • 4GB - $10
  • 6GB - $15

Moreover, the device can connect up to 15 devices at the same time.

MetroPCS' first standalone mobile hotspot and mobile broadband plan at $35 per month for 10GB of LTE data makes a very good option for those who need to stay connected. As a comparison, your other options include the following:


  • AT&T GoPhone Mobile Broadband with 2GB of data at $25 per month
  • H2O Bolt with 10GB at $50 per month
  • Net10 Wireless with 2.5GB at $30 per month
  • FreedomPop GSM LTE with 4GB at $43.99 per month
  • Data Jack with 2GB at $29.99 per month
  • Boost Mobile with 10GB at $50 per month
  • NetZero Mobile Broadband with 2GB at $32.95 per month
  • T-Mobile Prepaid Mobile Internet with 3GB at $30 per month
  • Verizon Prepaid Mobile Broadband with 1GB at $20 per month
  • Straight Talk with 1GB at $15 per month

You can check the other prepaid mobile broadband plans available to see if MetroPCS' first standalone mobile hotspot and mobile broadband plan is the right choice for you. 

This mobile hotspot data plan will be available starting January 22nd.

  1. That's actually a pretty good deal, and pretty much would make DSL service obsolete (at least what I had in the past, naked DSL from Verizon for $20/month) if you're within the T-Mobile service area.

    1. As far as I can tell, this does not even have BingeOn. So it is not competitive. Try again Metro.

    2. Binge On, a scheme that was illegal under recent Net Neutrality law, is not any sort of benefit.

      Under it, T-Mobile fined me by making me pay extra to watch video it didn't want me to watch.

      They should have obeyed the law and applied Binge On to ALL data (no fines for data use TMO didn't like)

    3. why not be smart and get boost mobile 4 for 100 plan, use 3 lines for phones and 1 for hotspot, every phone comes with 8gb of hotspot for free. Almost every metro area big city has boost mobile now

    4. First of all who can afford $100/month, in addition to the exorbitant costs of the initial purchase of 4 handsets. Secondly, Boost is on the Sprint network, the more restrictive CDMA spectrum that is not consumer-friendly and difficult to unlock.

  2. I saw the brochure, it’s 35 bucks for 10 gb if you add it to your metro pcs account.
    If you want the hotspot as a stand-alone hotspot, that 10gb 35 plan turns to 70 a month.

  3. Maybe the FreedomPop haters can stop hating now :-)

    1. How so? Nothing here justifies their sleazy tactics, recently increased fees to keep "free" service, nor their complete lack of innovation (or any change at all really) in the face of increased competition.

    2. FreedomPop's deception-based business model shows that the source of the hate is the company, not its victims.

    3. "How so? Nothing here justifies their sleazy tactics"

      Are they clearly stating what they are doing ?

  4. T-mobile with autopay is $35/mo for 6 GB.

  5. Oh and what about 4G Antenna Shop's 50GB for $85 T-Mobile deal (prioritized above MetroPCS and other MVNOs)? That's much cheaper per GB than Metro's offer.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Is this even worth it? If you get the 60 dollar plan, you get the same 10gb of hotspot, and you aren't paying 35 a month extra for it.
    Also you don't have to pay for the device as well. I'm sure that hotspot device isn't free.

  7. Unless it is unlimited, why bother. There are many options available with limits.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Well... once I thought I use less than 100 minutes and text than data, so I can separate my data and min/text line.. but I re-read it its 35 for when adding the line. NO.

  9. Problem is, I don't want to pay that much per month just for data nor do I need that much data. The AT&T Prepaid 2GB for $25/month still seems like the best deal for low usage folks looking for reliable data service.

  10. Never mind the elephant in the room of rooting & tethering for free.
    Granted Metro is more aggressive than most about defending against this, but it's still doable last time I checked, and even if that's no longer the case it's not like there aren't plenty of alternative unlimited data plan options elsewhere.

    1. Enjoy that elephant. Best of luck to you in finding a way to make sure that it trumpets freely.

      Because you bought the data, so it's your right to use it in any legal way possible.

      Even if these uses happen to offend some people, like watching My Little Pony videos or using the data for tether.

      Delete
  11. Oh look, they killed net neutrality and "wireless broadband" packages are coming back. Looks like tethering is back on the chopping block...

    1. Considering the new 50 unlimited plan has no tethering on it anyway, it's been chopped off already.

      Delete
    2. Shouldn't be a problem unless you're one of them there data hogs.

      Delete
  12. Of course. There was nothing good intended to come about by getting rid of net neutrality. And lots of bad things a lot of people in powerful places wanted to get done.

    ReplyDelete
  13. To those who are complaining about net neutrality violations.... You should know that mobile networks were never covered by net neutrality to begin with, so your complaints are pointless.

  14. LG Aristo 2 goes official at MetroPCS, priced to sell for $60

  15. The actual hotspot device is expected to cost 50 bucks.
