Mobile Limiting High-Speed Data in Canada, Mexico to 5GB

T-Mobile is about to add a new limit to its unlimited plans T-Mobile getting rid of unlimited LTE roaming in Mexico and Canada on November 12

The change applies to T-Mobile ONE Plus, Simple Choice, and legacy customers. After burning through 5GB, your speeds will drop to just 128kbps (or 256kbps if you have a T-Mobile One Plus plan).

T-Mobile provides usage breakdowns on its website so you can see exactly how this new setup will affect you if you do travel out of the country and use LTE while overseas, and if you're part of that one-percent that uses more than 5GB of data while visiting Mexico or Canada, you can purchase T-Mobile's ONE Plus International add-on for $25 extra per line per month to keep your unlimited LTE when in these two countries.

Again, One plans still have unlimited LTE data in the US. You can use your remaining 3GB high speed data when you return to the US.

Go from NY to Canada, or from California to Mexico; it's just like going from Idaho to Texas, from Georgia to Kentucky.

While you still won't have pay roaming charges, depending on your plan Simple Global speeds may put you in the 128kbps hell zone where you'll feel like you've been transported back to the Stone Age.

You can find out more details about the latest Uncarrier offering from T-Mobile over at their website at the link below.

One of T-Mobile's more generous offers was born out of its "Mobile Without Borders" plan. Once that threshold is reached, the carrier may prioritize (throttle) data speeds during periods of congestion. After the users have exceeded 80% of the 5GB limit, they will be sent an alert message from T-Mobile. The feature was and still is available to certain T-Mobile subscribers, but that will be changing on November 12.

The mobile carrier said that it wants to improve and make a decision to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product".

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. Well, the 5 GB LTE data limit is a healthy amount though for a short visit.
