MetroPCS makes changes to 4G LTE plans

On Friday afternoon PhoneNews.com posted information they obtained regarding changes to MetroPCS‘s 4G LTE plans. The changes will reportedly go into effect today, though the MetroPCS website does not yet reflect them. There will be four tiers of 4G LTE plans, and Metro has changed the way they work a little. Instead of limiting features such as streaming video on some of the lower-tiered plans, Metro has simply created 4G data caps. After customers exceed their 4G allotment, they’ll then revert to 1x or 3G signal, depending on their network.

The plans still do start at $40, but the new ones will allow users 250MB of 4G data before they get dumped back on a 1x or 3G network. The $50 plan bumps up the 4G data to 2.5GB, while the $60 plan doubles that to 5GB. The $60 plan also includes Rhapsody Unlimited Music. At $70 per month users get what is termed unlimited 4G data, plus access to MetroStudio Video on Demand service.

We’ll be on the lookout for changes, but you can check for them yourself at the newly redesigned MetroPCS website.
