MetroPCS has a new 4G LTE offer for those of you who want unlimited data but don't want to pay out the nose. Announced today, its new 4G LTE plan will cost $55 per month for unlimited talk, text, and of course, 4G LTE data. Everything plans are nothing new, but MetroPCS President Thomas Keys assures CNET that there are "no strings" attached with this one.

Keys also says that there isn't a solid cut off date for this particular promotion, claiming that the end date will be determined by how popular the plan is with consumers. To go along with your new 4G LTE plan, MetroPCS will also be offering the freshly-revealed LG Motion 4G. Paying $149 (with a two-year contract, naturally) will net you a 3.5-inch HVGA display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera, and a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. This just so happens to be the carrier's first ICS smartphone, and while it isn't going to be something smartphone fanatics go crazy over, it will be enough for newcomers who are looking to get in on the 4G action.

If you're in need of some kind of family plan, MetroPCS will let you share the 4G everything plan with up to three other devices for an additional $50 per phone. The company is also currently offering rebates when you buy a second 4G phone, and the LG Motion 4G is indeed included in that offer. It appears that this promotion will be going live on the MetroPCS website later on this week, so be sure to keep an eye out for that if you're interested in signing up.

If there truly aren't any strings attached, then this sounds like it could be a good deal. If it's successful, MetroPCS stands a pretty good shot at giving the other, larger carriers a run for their money. We should be seeing just how successful this 4G LTE promotion is soon, so stay tuned.
