Budget wireless carrier MetroPCS has added an eye-popping “limited time” offer for unlimited talk, texting, and 4G LTE data for just $55 a month, the company announced today.

MetroPCS doesn’t have the marketing heft of big players like Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, but this new offer could certainly grab some attention. The new offer gives consumers a savings of $15 per month over previous offers. Families that want in can get an even better deal, with the price dropping to $50 per month for additional lines.

The company has not stated an end date for its promotion. MetroPCS President Thomas Keys told CNET that the company did not want to “set an artificial timeline.”

The newest addition to MetroPCS’s handset lineup is the $149 LG Motion 4G. The Motion 4G runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and includes a 3.5-inch screen, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, and 5-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording.
