MetroPCS' new music streaming product doesn't use up your data

If you're a music-loving MetroPCS customer, you'll want to know about this. The prepaid provider has just launched a new streaming product called "Music Unlimited" that gives you a way to access your subscriptions without going over your data cap. It's pretty much a repackaged version of its parent company's (that is, T-Mobile's) Music Freedom and comes bundled with the provider's $40, $50 and $60 plans. The carrier says it supports over 30 streaming services, including Apple Music, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Rhapsody and Spotify. In addition, MetroPCS has introduced a new feature called Data Maximizer -- its T-Mobile counterpart is Binge On -- that optimizes or crunches videos from select services, so you can watch much more without obliterating your data allowance. When these features go live on November 19th, the carrier will also boost its $40 and $50 plans with an additional 1GB of data and up its mobile hotspot's tethering cap from 6GB to 8GB.
