Mobile puts a cap on high-speed data roaming in Canada, Mexico

13 October 2017, 07:37 | Lucia Cruz

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

T-Mobile Will Limit LTE Roaming in Canada and Mexico to 5GB starting November 12

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. This move isn't surprising when you consider T-Mobile is pushing unlimited plans more aggressively than it was in 2015. T-Mobile is rolling that feature back and limiting LTE to 5GB per month in those countries. Once the cap is reached, you will be switched to Simple Global speeds only. After burning through 5GB, your speeds will drop to just 128kbps (or 256kbps if you have a T-Mobile One Plus plan).

In case you need high-speed data on your T-Mobile number, you would need to go for another $25 on the top of the base plan.

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

Packers try to continue dominance vs. division foes
The Packers are hopeful to have left offensive tackle David Bakhtiari back for this game for the first time since opening week. If Bridgewater is still the player we remember from 2015, the Vikings could be very risky moving forward with him at the helm.


T-Mobile offered Mobile Without Borders Un-carrier plan which introduced free calling texting and LTE plans for travelers in Mexico, Canada, and US. After the users have exceeded 80% of the 5GB limit, they will be sent an alert message from T-Mobile.

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.

After unveiling a new "Mobile Without Borders" deal in 2015 to all ONE and ONE Plus customers, you've been able to enjoy that oh so sweet LTE data overseas in Mexico and Canada. T-Mobile notes you can still pay for the One Plus International add-on and get unlimited LTE in Mexico and Canada. Instead of having unrestricted LTE data in Mexico and Canada, you only get a maximum of 5GB. 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. "In order to prevent usage beyond the intent of the product, we implemented a limit on the amount of monthly 4G LTE data", T-Mobile wrote on its support site.
