MetroPCS Kills Off $40 Unlimited Plan
MetroPCS has quietly discontinued offering its cheapest unlimited LTE data plan, for which it charged $40 per month. The company confirmed that the plan was dropped when MetroPCS ceased offering the Samsung Craft, its first LTE 4G phone, in late December. Moving forward, MetroPCS is offering its smartphone customers unlimited voice, messaging, email, and 1GB of streaming data for $50 per month. For $60 per month, MetroPCS customers gain unlimited streaming and access to Rhapsody and MetroStudio.
