MetroPCS getting its own version of Music Freedom, to stream unlimited music on $40+/mo plans


T-Mobile is extending its popular Music Freedom service, which allows unlimited use of Google Play Music and other streaming music services without eating into your data allowance, to MetroPCS prepaid customers – albeit under a slightly different name. T-Mobile said that its Music Unlimited service would be available on a range of plans, starting from just $40/month.

Music Unlimited includes more than 30 music streaming services, including Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, Slacker, iHeart Radio, and Google Play Music. Music Unlimited is available to new and existing MetroPCS customers on Metro’s new $40, $50, and $60 unlimited plans.

The company is also offering a Binge On equivalent, known as Data Maximizer. This compresses streaming video streams down to DVD quality to allow customers to stream three times as much video content for the same data usage … 

All MetroPCS plans get Data Maximizer, while Music Unlimited is offered on single line plans from $40 and family plans from $35/line. You can find details of the qualifying plans here, and the full list of 33 supported streaming music services here.

Back in the summer, T-Mobile said that its customers were streaming up to 131M songs a day. The revised MetroPCS plans come into effect on Thursday 19th November.
