Mobile cuts LTE roaming in Canada and 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

Once that threshold is reached, the carrier may prioritize (throttle) data speeds during periods of congestion.

If you are on a USA high-speed plan with 4GB data or 6GB data per month, you will get only 2GB data when you are in these countries.

- John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile in 2015. The company T-Mobile unveiled that from November 12, it will bind the unlimited LTE data to 5 GB monthly at the time of traveling to United States neighbors.

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. The users can estimate how much they would be affected while traveling overseas. 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.

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. This plan was offered only for USA citizens with a One or One Plus Mobile.

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.

We already know that T-Mobile's unlimited plans have limits, just like they do at every other wireless carrier. "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.

"Mobile Without Borders is an incredible benefit and allows customers to stay connected when traveling in Canada and Mexico", T-Mobile said. You can also check your LTE data usage with a shortcode #WEB# from your mobile. It's not unlimited LTE but it appears subscribers have been consuming large amounts.

This new limit on T-Mobile's unlimited plans will take effect on November 12th.
