Metro PCS only arrived on the wireless scene less than a half-dozen years ago. The regional company’s short-term goals included wireless service on a pay as you go basis in large metropolitan areas that might have formerly had no such option. Atlanta, for example has been a regional metropolitan market for the upstart carrier since its inception. Before Metro, no other provider in the Atlanta market offered the pay as you go flexibility, which is more of a lifestyle option than a cellphone plan.
Long-term goals for the company of course, include expansion into further metro markets. Recent additions to service area coverage include Detroit and Orlando. Currently, Metro PCS offers wireless service in about a dozen cities in Northern California, in South and Central Florida, and select metro areas in Georgia, Michigan and Texas.
Metro PCS’s motto is "Talk Freely." Nothing is free, but their Advantage plan offers customers a flat monthly rate of $40 to talk as much as you want. Extra charges apply for long distance outside the continental U.S. and for areas outside of your home coverage area you must be a subscriber to TravelTalk.
TravelTalk is a recently added feature to the Metro PCS program. TravelTalk gives customers the flexibility to talk outside their metro area for additional cost. Of course this is only beneficial for individuals who rarely roam, physically or digitally.
Cellphones from Metro PCS include the hottest models from brand name makers Samsung, Motorola, Kyocera, and Nokia. Also customers who already have a cellphone number they’d like to keep may do so with Metro’s hassle free commitment to number portability.
