T-Mobile Brings Unlimited Music Streaming to MetroPCS

Posted by at 12:07 pm on November 16, 2015

MetroPCSMetroPCS today announced a handful of new features that mirror services offered by its parent company, T-Mobile.

First, MetroPCS customers now have access to Music Unlimited, which, like T-Mobile’s Music Freedom, lets customers stream unlimited music over LTE without impacting their monthly data allotment. Music Unlimited is compatible with 33 different streaming music services and is available to customers on the $40, $50, or $60 plans.

Second, MetroPCS is now offering a service called Data Maximizer, which delivers a three-fold increase in the amount of video users can stream over LTE 4G. With Data Maximizer turned on, customers can watch more video each month at DVD quality (480p). Video consumption is not unlimited, however; the Data Maximizer compression tool simply reduces the amount of video data transmitted over the network so it impacts customer plans less. Customers can toggle Data Maximizer on/off whenever they want.

Third, and last, MetroPCS has added more data to its service plans. Moving forward, there are four plans for single/family lines. The entry level plan costs $30 per month and includes unlimited talk and text, and 1GB of data. The $40 plan bumps data to 3GB (from 2GB) and includes Music Unlimited/Data Maximizer. The $50 plan bumps data to 5GB (from 4GB) and includes Music Unlimited/Data Maximizer. The $60 plan includes unlimited data, 8GB of mobile hotspot data (up from 6GB), and Music Unlimited/Data Maximizer. Family plans cost $5 less per line when two or more lines are associated with a single account.

Music Unlimited, Data Maximizer, and the new prepaid plans will be available Nov. 19.
