Mobile rebrands MetroPCS prepaid service as 'Metro by T

T-Mobile CEO John Legere introduces Metro by T-Mobile formerly known as MetroPCS

T-Mobile, one of the most disruptive wireless carriers in the USA, is completely refreshing its pre-paid subbrand MetroPCS with a new look, name, and more feature-rich plans.

Metro by T-Mobile's top-tier unlimited plan will cost $60 for one line and include both Google One and Amazon Prime.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere teased the Metro by T-Mobile unveil over the weekend on Twitter.

A sign for a T-Mobile store is seen in Manhattan, New York, U.S., April 30, 2018.

T-Mobile announced today that it's giving Metro PCS a new name.

The $50/month unlimited plan still comes with just 5GB of LTE mobile hotspot, but now you also get Google One included for free.

T-Mobile is rebranding its MetroPCS prepaid wireless service in the United States in an effort to shed the "outdated perceptions" that prepaid is synonymous with cheap flip phones, bad credit and limited coverage. It has been five years since T-Mobile acquired the smaller wireless carrier, so in the grand scheme of things this change didn't take too long. "That's outdated thinking! Metro by T-Mobile customers aren't making a compromise, they're REFUSING to make a compromise". Along that Google One extra, you'll also get a subscription to Amazon Prime, which will definitely be a tempting perk for those who don't want to give up Prime but aren't exactly tickled by its recent price hike. The brand's customer base has grown from around 8 million in 2013 to fully 18 million today, likely due to the fact that T-Mobile is selling the brand nationwide (instead of in a handful of cities) across 10,000 retail locations. Metro by T-Mobile's new unlimited plans cap HD video streaming at 480p, and if you go over 35GB of data consumption in a month's time you'll get your network speeds throttled when you're in an area experiencing network congestion.

Metro claims that customers will save $1,000 annually on its two new plans versus comparable options from AT&T and Verizon.
