The free service is made possible by the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). This government-sponsored program aims to make ownership of a connected smartphone affordable for everyone.
Let’s go over what the program offers and how to check if you’re eligible.
Free Metro by T-Mobile service: how does it work?
Essentially, the CPA will cover all or part of your Metro by T-Mobile service. If you opt for the company’s entry-level plan – which gets you unlimited calls and texts with 5GB of 5G data – the ACP will cover the entire $30-a-month plan. That means totally free Metro by T-Mobile service!
If you don’t want this plan (or already have another one), the CPA will reduce the monthly total by $30. It could save you up to $360 per year, which is certainly nice. With this discount, you can pay just $10 a month for unlimited talk/text with 10GB of 5G data, or just $20 a month for unlimited talk/text, unlimited data, 5GB of point-of-view data. access and 100 GB of Google One storage.
