Cricket matches MetroPCS with $50/mo plan with 8GB of LTE data, unlimited talk and text

Last week, T-Mobile prepaid brand MetroPCS debuted a rather neat promotion that updated the $50/month plan to include 8GB of LTE data. Today, Cricket Wireless responded with a similar promotion that matches the MetroPCS offer. 

Cricket Wireless and MetroPCS may have similarly-priced prepaid plans but they are not identical. The two prepaid carriers, however, have an intersection point at what seems to be the most popular plan, $50/mo for 5GB of LTE data. MetroPCS launched a promo last week that boosted the monthly storage bucket on the $50 plan to 8GB of monthly, and now Cricket Wireless has decided to match it.

If you're already on Cricket's $50/mo plan, instructions on how to upgrade can be found over at the source link below.

If you're tempted to make the switch to Cricket, note that you can shave $5 off the bill by setting up AutoPay on your account. 8GB of monthly data and unlimited talk and text at $45? That sounds like a good deal for heavier data users.
