MetroPCS Hoping to Offer Low-Cost LTE Android Phones
MetroPCS is working with five handset makers to bring inexpensive Android smartphones to market that support its LTE 4G network. MetroPCS didn't say what manufacturers it is working with, but noted that it is targeting the $99 to $149 price range. In addition to the low-cost smartphones, MetroPCS is also weighing its LTE 4G and spectrum plans moving forward. Speaking at a financial conference, MetroPCS' Keith Terreri said that the company has about $1.5 billion to spend on more spectrum, though he also admitted that the company may have to resort to roaming deals. "In our markets we prefer to own the spectrum, and therefore we can control the customer experience," he said. "Outside of our markets, we're going to need partners, particularly from a 4G perspective, we're going to need roaming." MetroPCS indicated that it has about 500,000 LTE customers, representing approximately 5% of its overall subscriber base.
