Starting today, MetroPCS is offering more high-speed data for accounts that have 2 or more lines – perfect for families. You can get 2 lines with unlimited talk, text, data and 6 GB of 4G LTE data for $60/month. If you port at least one number from another carrier, you can slash the price down to $30/month for each additional line you add, up to 5 lines.
Competing with Sprint’s limited shared data plan, MetroPCS get their own data so they don’t have to share. In addition, MetroPCS customers get Music Unlimited plus Mobile Hotspot at no extra charge. Sprint customers who switch to MetroPCS can save up to 40% on their phone bill.
Phone Plans Compared
Digital Trends wrote an article back in January and compared shared data plans from multiple carriers. They found that Sprint, Verizon and AT&T focus on sharing data while T-Mobile plans let each family member have their own allotment of data. T-Mobile and AT&T also let customers save data they don’t use and add it to the next month.
