T-Mobile doubles the reach of MetroPCS in less than three months
T-Mobile has had less than three months since closing its purchase of MetroPCS to impose its will on the pre-paid carrier. So far, since the deal closed, MetroPCS has doubled its presence across the country and has opened stores in 15 new markets. Connecting to its new parent's HSPA+ and LTE pipeline, the average Metro customer will see speeds on the average 7 times faster than what they had experienced prior to the closing of the acquisition.

MetroPCS' unlimited 4G plans start as low as $40 and are available in the 15 new markets announced on Thursday, doubling the pre-paid carrier's presence to 30 areas. All of the markets will offer the BYOD program, allowing customers to bring their own GSM flavored Windows Phone or Android model. That plan also supports the AT&T and T-Mobile branded Apple iPhone and the Verizon and Sprint branded Apple iPhone 5.

The new markets announced today include Baltimore, MD; Birmingham, Ala.; Cleveland and Akron, Ohio; Corpus Christi, Texas; Fresno, Calif.;
Houston, Texas; Memphis, Tenn.; New Orleans, LA; Rio Grande Valley, Texas; San Antonio and Austin, Texas; San Diego, Calif.; Seattle and Tacoma, Wash.; Tallahassee, Fla.; Toledo and Sandusky, Ohio and Washington, DC.

MetroPCS' LTE service now reaches 157 million POPs in 116 million metro areas and phones available include the popular Samsung Galaxy S4, among others.
