Mobile Caps High-Speed Data At 5GB While Roaming In Canada, Mexico

The change applies to T-Mobile ONE Plus, Simple Choice, and legacy customers. We all know that "unlimited" really isn't unlimited though and when the T-Mobile One plan debuted it had a cap of 32GB of use per month before data prioritization.

In 2015, T-Mobile (subsidiaries of the German telecommunications company Deutsche Telekom AG) broadcasted its Un-carrier movement called "Mobile without Borders" under which unlimited calling, texting was offered to the customers and LTE date to Canada and Mexico that has been a tempting alternative for most of the travelers.

If you run out of data, the speed will be reduced to as low as 128 Kbps.

LTE roaming in Mexico and Canada is being downgraded to 5GB/month, and the change takes effect on November 12.

Note that you can get unlimited LTE in Mexico and Canada by adding One Plus International to your account, but at $25 a month, that option isn't exactly cheap.

Mexico readies for worst as 4th round of NAFTA talks open
Mexico could leave NAFTA and have the strength to move on without any serious long-term structural damage to the economy, he said. Asked during his appearance with Trudeau whether NAFTA was dead, Trump said, "We'll see what happens".

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. It's just LTE in Canada and Mexico that's capped.

T-Mobile subscribers got some fantastic news earlier this week.

One of T-Mobile's more generous offers was born out of its "Mobile Without Borders" plan. Also, the customers with the limited data plan can no longer make use of their Data Stash if he is in either of these two nations, though the unconsumed data will carry over.

The mobile carrier said that it wants to improve and make a decision to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product". According to T-Mobile, less than one-percent of its customers with Mobile without Borders actually travel to Mexico or Canada and use over 5GB of data while visiting. Starting on 12 November, the LTE speed will drop to 256Kbps for Oneplus users and 128Kbps for other users after the daily limit has been reached. Is 5 GB more than enough anyway?
