MetroPCS announces "the biggest offer in Sprint's history"
The promotion will give those saying "buh bye" to Sprint, two lines each with 2GB of 4G LTE data for $50 a month. That price includes taxes, fees and the usual mish mash that is thrown in. The plan comes with unlimited talk and text, and of course all of this is carried over T-Mobile's high-speed 4G LTE network.
As they say in those late night infomercials, "Wait. There's more." Port over your current Sprint number when you make the switch, and you will receive a free Samsung, LG or Kyocera 4G LTE handset with a value of $50 for each line switched. The handsets included in the offer include the LG Leon, Kyocera Hydro Wave, Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, and the LG K7. Or, you can use the $50 rebate toward any phone sold by the carrier.
In addition to Sprint, the deal is good for those moving from Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile (Sprint's pre-paid units) to MetroPCS. According to today's press release, as nearly 5000 customers a day switched to MetroPCS from the Sprint network during the previous quarter. Those taking advantage of the new promotion will be able to use Music Unlimited, the plan that allows subscribers to listen to streamed music from over 40 providers without using any of their precious high-speed data allowance. Those switching will also be able to avail themselves of Data Maximizer. This is the feature that optimizes streamed video at 480p (DVD quality) allowing customers to watch 3 times the video using the same amount of data that they previously employed.
MetroPCS also has something for their existing customers so that they don't feel left out. Those currently on a $50 or $60 a month plan can add a new line with 5GB of 4G LTE data for just $30 a month. That is a $20 or 40% savings.
The promotion starts tomorrow, January 21st, at participating MetroPCS locations and will be offered for a limited time.
