The Future of Metrocards and OMNY

OMNY Replacing Metrocards?

OMNY which stands for One Metro New York is a contactless payment system that is currently still being implemented all over New York and its surrounding areas. Many New Yorkers know, but some may not. But by 2023, metro cards will be phased out by the MTA and replaced with a contactless payment method called OMNY.

As of December 31st, 2020, OMNY became available to all MTA buses and train stations. Now while this may cause some dissonance due to the integration of going cashless, and the fact that we can’t live in a cashless world, OMNY will become a huge step forward into more technological advancements. And with the ongoing pandemic as of this article, going contactless is a much safer and beneficial alternative to the MetroCard. 

The History of Metrocards

Before OMNY and even metro cards, tokens were used. But tokens became an inconvenience. They were heavy and made lots of noise. Thus in 1992, metro cards started being utilized.

These magnetic strip cards were refillable cards that took cash/card and then utilized on trains and buses. It was a much bigger convenience than token coins. And up till now, it was the best form of payment. There were many benefits to using a MetroCard such as buying a weekly or monthly card that allowed you to swipe unlimited times for a set amount of money. This saved a lot of money than paying consistently every time you enter the station. But now with new technological advancements, it became time to go even further, and out comes a payment method that didn’t require a physical card or the need to refill. 

How OMNY Works and Convenience

OMNY is basically a contactless payment method. This means that you can use any method that accepts tap. Such forms would be credit cards that allow tap or phones implementing payments like Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay. You would then just tap or hover your card/device over the OMNY reader and the payment would be accepted. 

Transfers and multiple riders are also acknowledged with OMNY. Just make sure that when you’re transferring, you’re using the same exact card you used and tap within the normal “two-hour window.” The same goes for multiple riders! Pay for how many riders you have and once transferring, tap the same amount of times, and the system will read them as free transfers. 

And for the people that can’t have cards or prefer to pay cash? OMNY will most likely create a card similar to a MetroCard that you don’t need to swipe. You just fill it with cash, and the card will be accepted at OMNY readers for you to just tap and go. 

Upgrade with OMNY

And while OMNY is still being phased in, consider getting a new advanced phone that is compatible with the likes of OMNY. 

The convenience of this system is that you don’t need your physical wallet on hand. It is much safer and reduces the risk of having your wallet snatched or robbed from you. It’s also much faster than taking out your wallet if you use a phone. Just implement your digital wallet, tap the card you want to pay, and go. It’s that simple! You can even choose what card you want to use, instead of searching for your MetroCard or having to think about what card you need to use to refill your MetroCard.

Rolling out one of the biggest changes in 2020, Allvoi has you covered with 5G Network! Do more with faster speeds, quicker communications, and network everything, all on Allvoi’s 5G network. 

But first, what is 5G? And why is it so important?

What Can’t You Do with 5G?

3G coming out was old news, and we’re all most likely currently using 4G LTE on our phones. But, 5G will transform and significantly change the role of wireless in our lives. 

By replacing 4G LTE, 5G will drastically boost the speed of downloads and uploads, while also reducing latency. Latency, which is the time it takes for devices to communicate with wireless networks will reduce, making it so that you might not even need a cable modem or Wi-Fi signal. With the ever-evolving field of telecommunications, and phones becoming more advanced – it’s time for you to decide whether 5G wireless service is best for you! 

Better Performance, Even Better Savings

At Allvoi, our prices are inexpensive, high-quality, reliable, and greatly beats the other carriers out there. Our “Unlimited Performance” and “Unlimited Elite” wireless plans bring you the best in what you want in a phone plan with 5G without breaking your budget. 

Get up to a whopping 50 GB of unlimited 4G LTE data for only $80 per line. And get access to the groundbreaking 5G network with your qualifying 5G phone in over 30 states! Taxes and fees are already included in the plan so you’re not paying a cent more. Forget about all those pesky fees you didn’t sign up for!

What else do you get with our unlimited wireless plans? Unlimited talk & text is always included and free international calling to over 40 destinations worldwide so you never miss a connection with your loved ones. Stay committed to your own device and phone number because you can keep both when you switch to Allvoi. HotSpot whenever you need it for other devices, and many other benefits when you choose the carrier that actually cares for you. 

If you want to stay ahead of the game, get the best performance at the best quality with Allvoi 5G Wireless. Backed by multiple networks including AT&T’s, you get strong and reliable connections throughout the U.S.

5G Devices

With our simple process to switch easily, you can keep your phone number and start using our affordable unlimited wireless plans and start saving at once.

You can also still switch easily with any device that you have and keep your phone number as well, no 5G needed. Here’s how to switch with ease to Allvoi.

5G Coverage Where? Everywhere!

Allvoi Wireless is working to connect the whole country to 5G. We’re proud to let you know that 5G coverage is up and running for all 5G devices in over 30 states – and it doesn’t stop there. We’re striving to make 5G available nationwide! 

But for now, scan our list to see if your state is 5G compatible:

AR AK AL AZ CA CO CT DC DE FL GA 

ID IL IN KS KY LA MA MD ME MI MN 

MO MS MT NC NH NJ NM NV NY OH OK 

OR PA RI SC TN TX UT VA WA WI WV

How Does Our 5G Compare to The Rest?

While the other carriers like the Big 4 have devices you can choose from, that’s no comparison to how much you’d be paying monthly for 5G access. While 5G is the new revolutionary network, that doesn’t mean you should pay a costly amount just to use the service. 

At Verizon Wireless, you can get unlimited 5G data at an incredibly expensive price of up to $100. While you can get unlimited 4G LTE at up to 75 GB of data, you don’t need all that data that will practically go unused. The average consumer only uses about 3 GB of data. So why are you paying so much for unused data? While Verizon plans do come with some good benefits like an Apple subscription and HD streaming, you’re paying so much for data that will just go to waste. And with the fees, your phone bill can skyrocket when all you want is access to 5G. So are these plans really worth it?

On the other hand, T-Mobile 5G wireless plans are cheaper, but the cons outweigh the benefits, unfortunately. As per T-Mobile’s FAQ, all their plans include 5G at no extra cost. While that seems good, it’s best to also check out the actual plan to see if it is right for you.  At $65 all the way up to $90 for their best plan, you get unlimited 4G LTE data and talk & text, and a Netflix subscription but that’s about it. And just like Verizon Wireless, your bill with come with many fees like service fees, installation fees, etc. Even the cheapest plan at T-Mobile can turn into the most expensive.
