MetroPCS has announced a new promotional unlimited plan for customers that starts at just $30 per month. The plan features unlimited talk, text, and data, but like always, there’s a catch.
The data is unlimited, but the high-speed cap is at a pretty low 1 GB. After that’s used up, you’ll be throttled. Pretty common practice with cheaper and prepaid carriers, so it’s not like MetroPCS is breaking the mold, but it would’ve been nice to see the cap a little higher. For $30, though, it might just be worth it. Read more
T-Mobile’s Music Freedom service might just be their most underrated Un-Carrier offer. It allows you to stream from participating music apps without penalizing your data. I can’t tell you how valuable that is if you drive around a lot.
They already have a slew of popular apps that are part of the service, but they keep adding more. They might be less obscure, but the bottom line is that T-Mobile is giving everyone an option. They have just added Tidal Music, BandCamp and MixCloud bringing the total to 31 streaming apps.
Hit the break for the complete list and don’t forget to enjoy some new music today.
