MetroPCS hikes the amount of data on two of its plans by 500MB
Competition in the pre-paid market is heating up. On Tuesday, Boost Mobile doubled the amount of high-speed data it offers, for those signing up with the mobile operator through November 3rd. Today, MetroPCS added 500MB of data to a pair of its plans. For example, subscribers who pay $40 a month (after taxes and fees) for unlimited talk, text and 500MB of data, will now have 1GB of data to consume each month. MetroPCS customers paying $50 a month for unlimited talk, text and 2.5GB of data, will now have 3GB of the sweet stuff to use each month. The carrier will apply the changes automatically, and customers don't have to do anything to receive the extra data.

Additionally, MetroPCS has expanded to ten additional regions. New locations can be found in Chattanooga, TN; Chicago, IL; Kansas City, MO; Milwaukee, WI; Minneapolis-St.Paul, MN; Norfolk-Portsmouth-Newport News, VA; Richmond-Petersburg, VA; Salt Lake City, UT; St. Louis, MO;
and Yakima-Pasco-Richland-Kennewick, WA.
