MetroPCS has followed suit with parent company T-Mobile’s recent decision to allow all of their customers to tether their phones to other wireless devices. All customers will have the mobile hotspot feature added at no additional cost, but things are structured a bit differently than how T-Mobile did things.
First off, if you have a capped data plan, your mobile hotspot usage counts towards your typical monthly allowance. You won’t get anything extra, so if you burn up all of your data streaming Netflix to your tablet, you’ll have to go up to the next data tier or wait until next month to keep going. Unlimited data users are limited to just 6 GB of tethering per month.
The move isn’t as flashy and aggressive as T-Mobile’s promotion, but hey, free stuff is awesome.
