T-Mobile and MetroPCS on Tuesday announced a new promotional rate plan for its prepaid customer base with a very affordable monthly fee. Starting immediately, customers can take advantage of a $30 option which includes unlimited talk, text, and 1GB of high speed data.
Although the plan includes 1GB worth of 4G data customers do actually receive or have access to unlimited data. Once the threshold is reached the speeds are simply throttled back for the remainder of the month.
Anyone with a MetroPCS phone can jump on the new plan; both 3G and 4G handsets are eligible for the promotion. According to MetroPCS, the promotion plan is only available in stores and that LTE phones are not eligible.
It’s not clear how long the deal will last or if this is an ongoing option.
