Boost Mobile and MetroPCS Launching New $100 Family Plan Promotions with Five and Four Lines
Sprint’s prepaid brand Boost Mobile and T-Mobile’s MetroPCS announced new $100 Family Plan promotions. While MetroPCS is offering four lines of unlimited service for $100 per month, Boost Mobile is adding one more line for the same money. Additionally, both carriers offer free phones to customers who port in the number to their service. Boost’s 5-line $100 promotion is good from Friday, October 27, through November 30, 2017 while MetroPCS’s is already available for unspecified period of time, in stores only.
New Boost Mobile Five-Line $100 Family Plan Promotion
Boost Mobile is offering five lines for $100 per month. Each line gets service from the $50 Unlimited Gigs plan, unlimited talk, text and LTE data. Video streaming is limited to up to 480p, music to 500 Kbps and gaming to 2 Mbps. Data depriorization threshold is set at 23 GB. The primary line on this promo is $100 and lines from 2-5 are $0 per month.
Boost’s five-line $100 promotion requires at least one line to be ported in from a carrier that’s not Sprint related. All other lines can be port-in or new lines. In other words, promotion is not eligible for existing customers.
In addition, each customer that switches to Boost can get a new phone for free. This offer is good through November 2, 2017.
New MetroPCS Four-Line $100 Family Plan Promotion
MetroPCS offers one line less for $100 per month comparing to Boost, but existing customers are eligible, too. MetroPCS’s four-line $100 promotion requires only one of four lines to be a new activation. If new line deactivates, all lines lose promotional rate. Each line gets unlimited talk, text and LTE data (video streaming at 480p) that $50 unlimited plan includes and no hotspot. MetroPCS’s data depriorization threshold is set at 35 GB, which means that customers who reach this limit might experience slower data speeds in periods of network congestion.
MetroPCS is also offering free phones to customers who switch to their service. Available phones are the Alcatel Fierce 4, Alcatel Fierce A30, Coolpad Defiant, LG Aristo, LG K20 Plus, Motorola Moto E4, Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime, Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime, ZTE Blade Z Max and the ZTE Avid TRIO. MetroPCS’s four-line $100 promotion and free phones are available at MetroPCS stores only.
