Metro by T-Mobile Unveils New Plan Offering

metro-by-tmobile-new-plans
A couple of weeks ago, T-Mobile announced that it was re-branding MetroPCS into Metro by T-Mobile.

At the time of its announcement, there was little information revealed by the wireless provider. But it looks like T-Mobile is ready to share the new unlimited plans it has lined up with its rebranded prepaid service.


Metro by T-Mobile New Plans

As unveiled earlier, Metro by T-Mobile will be offering a total of four new plans:

  • $30 plan - includes 2GB of LTE data and mobile hotspot from LTE data
  • $40 plan - includes 10GB of LTE data, no mobile hotspot
  • $50 plan - includes unlimited LTE data and 5GB LTE mobile hotspot usage
  • $60 plan - includes unlimited LTE data and 15GB LTE mobile hotspot usage

These plans all carry unlimited talk and text, and include taxes and fees. In addition to this, Metro by T-Mobile will be offering Google One and Amazon Prime on the higher tiered plans. Both the $50 and $60 plan comes with 100GB of Google One Cloud storage. The $60 plan, on the other hand, adds Amazon Prime to the mix.

Customers who use over 35GB of data per month may get slower speeds in times of network congestion. Video streaming is limited to 480p resolution. There is an option to get HD as an add-on for $10.

Apart from the changes to the plans being offered, Metro by T-Mobile largely stays the same. It continues to run under T-Mobile's network.

  1. You missed an important change -- the multi-line plans are *much* more expensive now.

    Instead of 4 lines of unlimited data for $100 total, it's now $140. The other plans had similar changes.

    This makes Metro less competitive with Cricket.

    Also, the activation fee increased from $10 to $15.

    1. Enjoy the 3Mbps throttle on the Crooket unlimited 4/$100 plan. And if you actually want to use data via hotspot, you will pay $140/month. Other Junk Fees extra. Don't like that stingy 3Mbps throttle? You will pay the same as Metro, as long as you only use data on the phone. If you want Crooket hotspot use, you pay $190/4, vs $150 on Metro. Metro lets you use hotspot, and you get Google One 100GB, and Amazon Prime on the $60/$150 for 4 lines plan.
      Crooket is only cheaper for crippled service with no hotspot. For second-class customers only.

    4. "you must be working for T.....you forgot NETWORK...."
      You're right that I didn't mention network differences. Look at the Crooket coverage map vs. T-Mobile. I use the 'Coverage?' app, and toggle LTE vs 4G. AT&T/Crooket map looks like Swiss cheese when I turn on LTE. Cheapskate AT&T did not bother to field LTE to MANY rural areas where they have towers. The T-Mobile/Metro map doesn't change much at all when I toggle; they have fielded LTE to the vast majority of their network. This is why T-Mobile has more LTE coverage than Crooket.
      Remember that Crooket only gives you up to a crippled, throttled 4Mbps speeds on AT&T 4G/3G service (often less). This is one of the biggest reasons why Metro has twice as many subscribers as Crooket. Data service is a LOT faster for Metro customers.

    5. 4 for a 100 is a promotional offer not a base plan. It could come back whenever. Also Crickets activation fee is 25

  2. I am on the $60 plan and for past few days, I tested Metro’s download speed using Fast.com and the speeds ranged from 680 kbps to 1.2 Mbps. If this keeps up, I am leaving Metro for good.

    1. Those are 3g speeds, is your phone showing the LTE coverage on the display? I am using ATT prepaid and the download speed on the cheap 1gb plan was 4.5mbps as shown on fast.com and the same on google speed test. The 1gb of “high speed data” lasted less than 2 days with 250+ mb used for email, 140mb used for sms/mms, 175mb used for system, the rest was used for safari and the last 28 days the speed was throttled down to 50kbps to 80kbps with an occassional jump late at night above 80kbps. The CNN homepage does not open at those speeds had to use opera mini to open webpages for those 28 days

  3. Why does the 10gb Plan have no hot spotting? This is backwards I heard of unlimited data plans not having hot spotting not the GB plans.

    1. Customers wanted more mobile data, and this is how they recover some of the cost. If you want 10GB fast LTE with hotspot, get the T-Mobile Simple Choice plan, $40 plus taxes and fees.

    2. 10GB? That is nothing today. I burn through at least 50GB of hotspot a month. And that is trying to conserve. These plans are not adequate for me, especially at these prices.

    3. put unlimited wifi its cheaper. We are a phone service company. We focus on what most cx want. It wasnt fair for the 40 dollar plan and not the 50. If youre not satisfied leave. Plans arent changing for everyones need

      Delete
  4. Is the Mobile Hotspot/Tethering "unlimited", as in once you use up your LTE Hotspot Data, it becomes "unlimited, but throttled" Hotspot Data?

    Thanks!

    1. Good question, and at what throttle speed? They never seem to address the important questions.

    2. Its limited. Once you finish the Hotspot gbs its done and WILL STOP WORKING

  5. Already did, and never looked back.
