How Do I Top Up to Use My Metro Pcs Mobile Hotspot?

Metro PCS offer mobile hotspot data to all their customers. You should ensure that it is the best choice for you before discarding your current data plan. The hotspot data can be added to the unlimited data plan or you can buy it by the gigabyte. To top up your account to use mobile hotspot data is the same as loading regular data with a few additions.

If you have been searching for an alternative to your current home internet or simply want a great internet connection on the go, then look no further. Metro PCS has come up with a mobile hotspot to which you can connect up to 6 devices at a time.

The Metro PCS mobile hotspot has several advantages. One of them is that it is cheaper especially if you live alone.

It also does give you a more secure internet connection especially when you are on the move. This is opposed to connecting to public Wi-Fi when travelling.

How Does the Metro PCS Mobile Hotspot Work?

When using a mobile hotspot, all you need is a smartphone that can access the Metro PCS 4G LTE network. Instead of using broadband, you connect to the internet through your internet service provider. It is also called a tether since you are tethering the connected devices to your mobile hotspot.

Before you hurry off to cancel your current broadband internet connection and swap it for a mobile hotspot, it is prudent to first consider if the mobile hotspot is the right choice for you.

One of the first things to consider is how many devices do you have that are able to connect to the internet. Although Metro PCS state that you can tether up to six devices to the mobile hotspot, the connection usually falters when you add more than two devices.

If you plan on using only three devices or less at a time, then a mobile hotspot is ideal for you. The opposite is true if you have more than five devices for example, if your entire family has smart devices.

Another consideration is how often do you travel and will you need an internet connection on the go. If you do, then you will definitely enjoy the mobile hotspot.

Metro PCS Mobile Hotspot Data Plans

Metro PCS does not offer standalone mobile hotspot data plans. Instead, they offer them alongside their pay-by-the-gig and unlimited plans.

There is no unlimited mobile hotspot data plan. Moreover, if you stream videos through the Metro PCS mobile hotspot, then you have poor video quality unless you add HD streaming to your plan for an additional fee.

Metro PCS pay by the gig plans

With this plan, you get 4G LTE data to the full amount of your plan. Therefore, if you acquire a 1 GB plan, the entire amount can be used as a mobile hotspot. This data plan varies per month depending on the data acquired.

Metro PCS Unlimited Plan

The Metro PCS unlimited plan allots you up to 35 GB of 4G LTE data. You also get 5 GB of mobile hotspot data alongside the unlimited plan. You should note that after you have exhausted the 35 GB, you will experience reduced speeds but will not be charged for the data. This plan costs $50 a month.

Metro PCS Unlimited Plan (Highest Tier)

This plan also offers you 35 GB of 4G LTE data. The difference is that you get 15 GB of hotspot data. Just as with the unlimited plan above, you only get reduced speeds when you exhaust the allotted data. The highest tier data plan will cost you $60 a month.

You can make adjustments to your plan whenever you desire as long as you understand the repercussions. Whenever, you deplete the 5 GB or 15 GB of mobile hotspot data in the unlimited plans, you can contact Metro PCS and make a special arrangement to have it added for a fee of course.
