No, there is no typo in the headline. MetroPCS, the budget cellular carrier, has launched an unlimited international plan for $5 that you can add on to any unlimited national calling plan costing $40, $45 or $50 per month. The unlimited international plan works with over 100 countries.
â€œUnlimited international calling at such an affordable rate can dramatically reduce monthly long distance costs and is yet another example of MetroPCSâ€™ commitment to providing industry-leading value to consumers in todayâ€™s tough economic climate,â€ said Roger D. Linquist, president, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of MetroPCS. â€œMetroPCS is eliminating the worry of high international calling fees, counting minutes and dialing a connecting number, typical of traditional calling cards. With MetroPCSâ€™ international calling, consumers are truly unlimited now more than ever.â€
Wow. MetroPCS has setup a website that you can test your international numbers against, but for $5 I say this is a deal.
