MetroPCS To Pursue LTE In 2010 – ‘It is our desire to deploy LTE in 2010, probably the latter half.’

Like Boost Mobile and Cricket, Prepaid cell phone carrier MetroPCS has seen some early success in the mobile market by offering discount unlimited plans with no contracts. While obviously not seeing the kind of growth of big boys AT&T and Verizon, the carrier added 520,000 subscribers during the fourth quarter and now serves 5.4 million subscribers. Our friend Stacey Higginbotham at GigaOM notes that MetroPCS will now be pursuing LTE technology in 2010. It would be nice to think they could impact 3G/4G pricing competitively, but so far, only T-Mobile has responded by pre-paid carrier moves toward truly cheap unlimited plans.
