Is T-Mobile Rebranding MetroPCS?

metro-by-tmobile-announcementThe mobile industry is looking forward to a big announcement MetroPCS has lined up for Sunday, September 23.

The T-Mobile prepaid brand released a special announcement teaser on the upcoming event. The poster shows the date of the announcement and a note that it will be "a big game changer."

As far as other details are known, MetroPCS has kept mum on what to expect the changes will be.

Boost Mobile founder Peter Adderton spotted a photo of what the new announcement could be all along. The executive shared the photo with a possibly new logo of MetroPCS, except that it will be carrying a different name: Metro by T-Mobile.



Could the announcement be a rebranding of the company? After a series of "hybrid" plans (postpaid/prepaid), the company may be making important changes real soon.

Stay tuned as we wait for the big announcement on September 23.

  2. My guess is they are going to make a weird hybrid prepaid/postpaid mix and add Tmobile to the branding or merger Tmobile prepaid with Metro and then in the long run if it all gets approved, merger Boost and Virgin into that new brand whatever its final name will be. I could be wrong but just wanted to put it out there in case it turns out to be closed. Bottomline, I'm expecting tons of Boost and Metro dealers to get royally screwed. Especially those that are located right next to each other. Like many urban markets.

  5. Adderton: Your grammer is horrible, read it three times to try and make sense of what it is you are attempting to say. Notwithstanding the aforementioned syntax error, don’t worry, MertoPCS/metro by T-Mobile clients aren’t going anywhere.

  6. He's just mad he won't be able to buy Metro and Boost after the merger. Too bad.

  7. Name change with some plan changes. And more data.

  8. Could be interesting. I suppose they'll want $10 more for HD video, so it's really $70. More interesting would be including MetroPCS in the Apple Upgrade program.

  14. Confirmed so far. $50/60 plans getting hotspotupgrades of 5gb and 15 gb respectively. Both get Google One. $60 gets Amazon Prime. Free. $30 plan going away in the future. Name to be changed to Metro by Tmobile to emphasize the fact that a big Four carrier officially backs up Metro. Longer term, 5G coming in 2019. That's what we know thus far. Anyone knows more, post.

  15. Yawn, they are simply selling a different model of the iPhone. I thought they might actually do something interesting.

  16. The announcement was made.
    Metro by T-Mobile has more than 18 million customers now, and is sold by more than 10,000 retail locations nation-wide. Metro has many millions of customers more than Cricket.
    T-Mobile wants customers to know that Metro runs on the T-Mobile network, something that was not clear in the MetroPCS branding and advertising.
    The Metro brand will continue with or without the merger with Sprint.

    1. Metro has twice as many customers as Cricket now. Cricket had about 9M customers as of March 2018. Metro is gaining customers faster than Cricket.

      Delete
    2. These relative numbers of customers don't mean a thing for the customer experience.

      what does make a difference is that even now, Cricket Works in a lot more of the places where Americans need to use their phones than Metro does. The difference is substantial, probably 25%.

      Until the T-Mobile network completes its build-out, Cricket is much better.

      if you want to use your phone, go with Cricket. If you only want it to work 3/4 of the time, go with Metro.

  17. soooo...did they re-brand it?

  18. The Metro $40 plan will get 10GB fast mobile LTE, vs. 5GB.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The Metro $40 plan went from 5 GB to 10 GB but lost the hotspot so not really a good deal. They are trying to push people to the $50 or $60 plan.

    1. NO PROBLEM. Sign up for the $40 T-Mobile Simple Choice plan and get 10GB/month AND the hotspot. Plus some data roaming. And Binge On.

      Delete
    2. There is nothing in the Metro website FAQ or description for the new $40/month 10GB high speed plan that states they are dropping hotspot.
      Where did you read that?

    3. Fierce Wireless article says the $40/10GB plan does have hotspot.
