MetroPCS Expands Calling Plan Options for Mexico

MetroPCS Expands Calling Plan Options for Mexico

| On 11, Feb 2014

MetroPCS is making it less expensive for people to stay in touch in touch with family and friends by adding Mexico to its calling plan for ten bucks a month.

With Mexico calling, customers receive: 200 minutes and 200 texts to the U.S. while roaming in Mexico; unlimited calling from the U.S. to Mexico-based landlines; 1,000 minutes of mobile-to-mobile calling, and unlimited texting to Mexico — all for $10 per month when choosing MetroPCS’ $50 or higher rate plans.

New research this week from the research firm Nielsen shows that 72% of Latinos over 18 own smartphones, nearly 10 percentage points higher than the national average. Nearly half of Latinos, 49%, said they planned to upgrade their smartphones in the next six months, according to the Nielsen study.

At $60, including taxes and regulatory fees, customers can reach friends and loved ones in Mexico along with access to unlimited data, talk and text in the United States on a nationwide 4G LTE network.

“Our customers have been looking to stay better connected with their friends and family in Mexico and we’re happy to provide them with calling capabilities that are affordable and truly work,” said Tom Keys, MetroPCS COO and executive vice president.

MetroPCS is a brand of T-Mobile US, Inc.
