MetroPCS makes calling and texting to and from Mexico affordable and easy
BELLEVUE, Wash. – February 11, 2014 – Already known as the best deal in town, MetroPCS, a brand of T-Mobile US, Inc. (NYSE: TMUS), is expanding its wireless coverage to Mexico -- making it even easier for its customers to get the most out of their wireless service. Starting today, MetroPCS customers will be able to call and text both to and from Mexico for the affordable price of just $10 a month.
With the expanded service, customers can stay connected to their families whether they are in the U.S. or Mexico, and can be confident that they will have coverage when traveling across the border to visit loved ones. With the Mexico calling service, customers no longer have to deal with enormous roaming costs during their travel or having to shut off their communications completely as a way to save money.
“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. “Travel is expensive enough as it is, but expanding our reliable service into Mexico allows our customers visiting there or calling from the U.S. to no longer worry about costly charges and billing surprises just to stay connected.”
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 just $10 per month when choosing MetroPCS’ $50 or higher rate plans. At just $60, including taxes and regulatory fees, customers are getting a phenomenal value to 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.
