Default T-Mobile HTC One M8 on MetroPCS...any thoughts ?

So, I have a T-Mobile HTC One M8, and I am thinking about switching from T-Mobile to MetroPCS, but I am wondering something.....I use about 50 to 100 GB of data on Tmos, truly unlimited plan, and I don't get throttled at all as far as I can tell. I want to know, if I switch carriers, would it be possible for me to have that same unthrottled LTE data in MetroPCS or do they say unlimited and then throttle it, say after 50 GBs of data usage ? And my next question would be, is this phone good to use on MetroPCS ? Or no ? Please let me know

Metro does throttle their unlimited plan.

I dont know if they still offer it but when i got the S3 from metro they had a special where it was truly unlimited data plan but i think that was a limited time promotion and never was throttled.

Went back on T-mobile when the m8 was released so not really keeping up with metro
