Bellevue, Wash. – T-Mobile prepaid brand MetroPCS rolled out a $30/month unlimited plan that it says is less expensive than any prepaid plan with data from rivals Boost Mobile and Cricket.
The plan, available today through MetroPCS corporate stores and independent cellular dealers, delivers unlimited talk, text, and data, though only 1GB of data is delivered at 4G HSPA+ speed. The plan is not available on 4G LTE phones, nor is it available through national retailers.
A spokesperson described the plan as promotional but said there is no end date.
The plan joins $40, $50, and $60 plans with unlimited talk, text and unlimited data, but these plans work with LTE phones. The $40 plans delivers the first 2GB of data at 4G LTE speeds, while the $50 plan offers 4GB of LTE data. The $60 plan offers unlimited LTE data.
The MetroPCS prices include taxes and fees.
