As of 2015, MetroPCS offers data plans to enable Internet access for tablets. The tiered plans include a specified gigabyte allotment that the customer can use each month.
Plans include data that reaches up to 4G LTE speeds. Although MetroPCS includes unlimited data, it reduces speeds after the customer uses specified plan allotment.
Unlimited texting is also covered with a MetroPCS data plan for tablets.
There is no annual contract requirement to use the service. MetroPCS reduces its monthly plan pricing when the customer adds additional lines or if the customer adds a tablet data plan to an existing MetroPCS account.
