Wireless carrier MetroPCS is now offering service in Baltimore.
The company says it offers nationwide 4G service and unlimited data, talk and text for $40 a month without a contract. Customers can upgrade or reduce service from month to month. The flat-fee monthly plans range from $40 to $60.
Customers can choose from a variety of smart phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Exhibit, or bring in an old device when they sign up for services.
The Baltimore rollout is part of MetroPCS's expansion in 15 new markets, among them Washington DC, Cleveland, Fresno, Ca., Houston, Memphis, New Orleans, San Antonio, San Diego and Seattle. MetroPCS is a brand of T-Mobile US Inc.
"We've been beating our no-contract competitors hands-down for value, and now, with the strength of the T-Mobile 4G network behind us, that lead is only going to grow," said Tom Keys, MetroPCS' chief operating office, in the announcement.
