MetroPCS Adds Unlimited International Calling for $5

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.

“Unlimited international calling at such an affordable rate can dramatically reduce monthly long distance costs and is yet another example of MetroPCS’ commitment to providing industry-leading value to consumers in today’s tough economic climate,” said Roger D. Linquist, president, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of MetroPCS. “MetroPCS is eliminating the worry of high international calling fees, counting minutes and dialing a connecting number, typical of traditional calling cards. With MetroPCS’ international calling, consumers are truly unlimited now more than ever.”

Wow. MetroPCS has setup a website that you can test your international numbers against, but for $5 I say this is a deal.
