Metro By T-Mobile Launches New Plans & First Prepaid 5G Pledge

Today is a pretty big day for T-Mobile, as it's relaunching the Metro PCS brand as Metro by T-Mobile. The New York City-based debut of the services was hosted by famous actor and comedian Keegan-Michael Key, whereas the plans themselves (detailed below) offer unlimited mobile data and many more extras for the same prices as before. But, Metro has been quietly changing the prepaid landscape for years, and today, the company takes a giant wireless leap forward for customers.

As reported by CNET, T-Mobile's Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray said the carrier's pending 5G launch will be sold through all of the operator's outlets, including its prepaid brand.

Eager to try 5G mobile service when it becomes available, but not a fan of contracts? Still, it isn't necessarily a given that prepaid networks will offer 5G just because their parent companies do, so it's nice to have the commitment nonetheless.

For many, the perception of prepaid wireless service meant subpar devices, service and coverage. Never mind the reality: MetroPCS customers get cell service from the same network as regular T-Mobile customers.

And 5G itself is all about blazing-fast wireless speeds and low latency (a measure of network responsiveness), with early deployments by Verizon focusing more on 5G as a broadband alternative in the home.

Metro customers can benefit from the new rate plans. All they have to do is come into a Metro store or contact Metro by T-Mobile's outstanding customer care team to make the switch. Annual memberships for Amazon's Prime service cost $119 per year.

T-Mobile US, Inc, together with its subsidiaries, provides mobile communications services in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the United States Virgin Islands.
