Mobile is about to add a new limit to its unlimited plans

Mobile is about to add a new limit to its unlimited plans

Traveling to Canada or Mexico as a T-Mobile customer previously meant having unrestricted access to your high-speed 4G LTE data, just like you would at home.

You can find out more details about the latest Uncarrier offering from T-Mobile over at their website at the link below. Once that threshold is reached, the carrier may prioritize (throttle) data speeds during periods of congestion. T-Mobile added a perk called "Mobile Without Borders" back in 2015 that allowed anyone with a ONE or ONE Plus plan to use full-speed LTE data while roaming in Canada or Mexico.

One of T-Mobile's big "uncarrier" moves was to offer worldwide roaming data to most customers for free. The company is trying to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product" with the new 4G LTE limit. This plan was offered only for USA citizens with a One or One Plus Mobile.

Starting on November 12th, the Mobile Without Borders plan will introduce a 5GB LTE data cap on unlimited customers when they're visiting Canada and Mexico.

For those people always traveling to Mexico and Canada and are on T-Mobile, sorry to say but the Un-Carrier is cutting your LTE roaming. 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.

T-Mobile has made this change which will only affect one percent of the people traveling to Mexico and Canada.

If you are on a legacy plan with a high-speed data maximum (i.e. 4GB, 6GB, 10GB), your data allowance is shared across US, Mexico, and Canada, but you only have up to 5GB high-speed data in Mexico and Canada combined. You can also check your LTE data usage with a shortcode #WEB# from your mobile. In case you do not want to pay the extra fees to T-Mobile, you can purchase a new SIM card if you are in these countries for a longer duration of time, however, you would have to manage with a different number.
