MetroPCS has released its new LTE pricing plans, but several public interest groups have a bone to pick with the new deals. Apparently the carrier is violating the FCC’s latest net neutrality rules as the plans include a $40 plan for unlimited web browsing and YouTube videos while a $50 plan adds 1GB of “additional data access” for things that do not fall under the “web browsing” category, such as Netflix and Skype. While MetroPCS insists that its new rate plans comply with the FCC’s new rules on the mobile open Internet, it does leave MetroPCS as the only party deciding what service gets included in one plan or another. What do you think?
