T-Mobile, one of the most disruptive wireless carriers in the U.S., is completely refreshing its pre-paid subbrand MetroPCS with a new look, name, and more feature-rich plans.
Starting next month, MetroPCS will be rebranded as Metro by T-Mobile. The prepaid wireless provider will keep its existing 2GB and 5GB plans (although 5GB is now doubled to 10GB) that are the most affordable of the bunch, but its new unlimited options will be upgraded across the board.
The $50/month unlimited plan still comes with just 5GB of LTE mobile hotspot, but now you also get Google One included for free. That means you get upgraded Google Drive storage, expert help, Play credits, and more at no extra cost. If you upgrade to the $60/month unlimited plan, you'll get 15GB of LTE hotspot, Google One, and a full Amazon Prime membership.
And, just like before, all taxes and fees are included in the prices that Metro advertises.
Metro by T-Mobile is the first wireless carrier to bundle Google One with its plans, but just last month, Sprint also announced that its Unlimited Premium $90/month plan comes with Amazon Prime.
