MetroPCS bites the Big Apple (and Boston, too)

MetroPCS adds New York City and Boston to its home network.

Wednesday morning on Today, I figured there was a reason someone stood behind Matt Lauer in Rockefeller Center and waved a MetroPCS sign. An odd assortment of characters is continually showing up in those outdoor segments, but this was particularly strange.

But after I got to work and read the news, it all made sense. Wednesday, the no-contract, low-cost carrier activated service in New York City and Boston.

In New York, service will extended outside the city to Newark and Paterson, N.J., while Boston service will include Worcester, Mass.; Providence, R.I.; and Manchester, N.H. MetroPCS already has 5.4 million customers in Los Angeles; San Francisco; Dallas; Philadelphia; Atlanta; Detroit; Las Vegas; Miami; Sacramento, Calif.; and Tampa, Fla.
