The potency of the MetroPCS prepaid offers.
Let’s try to unpack the fizz and power behind MetroPCS prepaid offers. On October 2018 MetroPCS rechristened as Metro by T-Mobile, unveiled two new data plans and added more power to their existing ones. Offering a potent fusion of 10 gigs and high-speed data for its $40 plan.
MetroPCS is without any doubt has the best array of all-unlimited plans spiced up with offers from Amazon Prime and Google One for $60. While Amazon Prime loads up its shopping and entertainment benefits into the MetroPCS plan you have Google One offering 100 GB storage to store your photos and videos and other documents.
Metro PCs uses the T Mobile network which means its coverage is close to 99% in the US covering more than 323 million people. Dominating on the prepaid segment with a virtual stranglehold of the market. It’s the best-prepaid provider with its plans ranging from its existing $30 and $40 and then the newly launched $50 and $60. Before we get into the plans it’s important to understand the pros and cons of the carrier.
The network is robust in urban zones but tends to dip in rural areas. So its best that you check the coverage maps to make sure it works for you. It does not provide you with an auto pay discount but the rates include taxes. On the positive side, it sure is the best provider for talking, texting, and data. Its performance matches that of its parent company T-Mobile.
In the 2018 JD Power annual survey on the industry both T-Mobile and MetroPCS come up with identical scores, 828 on a 1000 point scale. The survey takes care of the qualitative on the quantitative aspects. While it may consider the network quality it also takes into account what the customers feel about the service and the brand. T Mobile topped in the full-service carrier segment while MetroPCS topped the prepaid sector.
Being a prepaid service provider with a competitive price line would mean that its the hot favorite for the demanding and discerning consumers in the days to come.
