Mobile puts a cap on high-speed data roaming in Canada, Mexico
Oct 13 2017 by Michele Stevens
For T-Mobile One customers, the One Plus worldwide option can be added for an extra $25 per month, and that'll get you unlimited high-speed data when venturing across the border. That's thanks to the company's Mobile Without Borders perk, which was implemented in 2015. All the same, this does limit T-Mobile's appeal to jetsetters. 12, the company will put a 5GB limit on 4G data and speed will be reduced thereafter. After 5GB of high-speed data is used in Mexico and Canada (or your high-speed data allotment is reached, whichever comes first), customers will stay connected with unlimited data at Simple Global speeds (up to 128kbps for most plans or 256kbps with T-Mobile ONE Plus). What T-Mobile is going to do is add a cap to the LTE mobile data.
T-Mobile offered Mobile Without Borders Un-carrier plan which introduced free calling texting and LTE plans for travelers in Mexico, Canada, and US.
Beginning July 15th, calls to, from and between the U.S., Mexico & Canada - whether mobile or landline - are included in our latest plans at no extra charge.
Starting next month, customers will have a 5GB LTE data roaming cap, which will affect less than 1-percent of its customers who travel to either country, according to the carrier.
If you run out of data, the speed will be reduced to as low as 128 Kbps.
The mobile carrier said that it wants to improve and make a decision to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product".
T-Mobile has made this change which will only affect one percent of the people traveling to Mexico and Canada. For those with old capped plans of 5GB or less, there's no change to the limit. For customers who already have a data limit, not a lot is changing, but the Data Stash option that lets you roll over unused data can't be used in either Mexico or Canada. You can also check your LTE data usage with a shortcode #WEB# from your mobile.
T-Mobile subscribers got some fantastic news earlier this week.
