On Monday, the prepaid courier MetroPCS switched the name to "Metro by T-Mobile," which reflects the ownership and the host network, while announcing two new unlimited data plans at the same time.
The first plan starts at $ 50 per month for one line and comes with 5 gigabytes of LTE tethering data plus 100 gigabytes of Google One cloud storage. The second starts at $ 60, but next to Google One includes an Amazon Prime membership and 15 gigabytes of LTE tethering.
Both levels are limited to streaming video with a resolution of 480p and can be interrupted by the network as soon as users exceed 35 gigabytes of data. The company also gives priority to native T-Mobile customers when networks become overloaded.
Metro will launch the plans in October.
The courier hopes for the wave of new iPhone XS and XS Max owners, and possibly a stronger sale of the iPhone XR of the next month. The XR is much cheaper than the XS line, with an entry price of $ 749, while relatively few features are being sacrificed. Preorders start on October 19th.
