Along with this re-branding, Metro is updating its rate plans by replacing its tiered data plans with two main unlimited plans starting at $50 ($60 for the higher-tiered one).

T-Mobile, one of the most disruptive wireless carriers in the USA, is completely refreshing its pre-paid subbrand MetroPCS with a new look, name, and more feature-rich plans.

The $50/month unlimited plan still comes with just 5GB of LTE mobile hotspot, but now you also get Google One included for free.

From this point on, Metro by T-Mobile will be offering up new perks with its new unlimited plans.

T-Mobile is sweetening the former MetroPCS brand, which is aimed at budget-conscious users who pay upfront for wireless service, with access to the latest smartphone models and added perks that are usually associated with pricier service plans.

And we're just getting started - this is just the first step in this Metro by T-Mobile journey.

The two new plans T-Mobile is introducing today begin at $50 and $60 for a single line. The transition made it so Metro PCS customers were connected to T-Mobiles improved network but both T-Mobile and Metro PCS would remain separate brands. T-Mobile's parent company, Deutsche Telekom, bought MetroPCS in 2013 and merged the two companies.

Metro by T-Mobile's base plan will start at $30 per month with taxes and fees included and offers 2GB of LTE data and mobile hotspot usage from your LTE data.

Prepaid phone plans allow people to get cell service without signing contracts and without having to qualify for financing. With this plan, you'll get 15GB of LTE mobile hotspot per month and a subscription to Amazon Prime along with your Google One cloud storage.

Today, T-Mobile announces that Metro PCS will now be called “Metro by T-Mobile”. In the meantime, head down to the comments section and tell us what you think about these new plans - do they offer good value for the money or are they a bit on the expensive side?
