Today MetroPCS, a prepaid service offered by T-Mobile, has rolled out a limited-time discounted price for its unlimited 4G LTE plan. Anyone who signs up between now and April 5th can get set up for $50 a month, a $10 savings off the usual price. There's no pre-planned end date, so you can then take advantage of the lower price for quite a while.

For comparison, T-Mobile offers unlimited data on the same network for $80 a month. Unfortunately, the offer isn't open to just anyone with a GSM device. You need a Huawei Vitria, Kyocera Hydro XTRM; LG Optimus F3, F6, F60; Samsung Galaxy Avant, Light, MEGA, S III, S4, S5; or ZTE ZMAX supplied by MetroPCS. BYOD devices are not eligible for this promotion.

MetroPCS offers a $40 "unlimited" plan that throttles data after the first 1GB and a $50 plan that slows down after 3GB. Not having to worry about hitting a limit usually costs $60. If knocking that price down $10 has caught your attention, you can find a giant banner advertising the promotion right on the MetroPCS home page.
