Mobile adds another limit to its 'unlimited' data plans

Share

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.

That's a pretty sweet deal indeed, but now we have some bad news from T-Mobile: Beginning next month, there will be a new limit added to one of the perks for the company's unlimited plans.

You can find out more details about the latest Uncarrier offering from T-Mobile over at their website at the link below. Once the cap is reached, you will be switched to Simple Global speeds only. One of those options was the Mobile Without Borders plan that provided unlimited LTE data when customers traveled to Canada or Mexico. After burning through 5GB, your speeds will drop to just 128kbps (or 256kbps if you have a T-Mobile One Plus plan).

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

"Mobile Without Borders is an incredible benefit and allows customers to stay connected when traveling in Canada and Mexico", T-Mobile said. However, this is a monthly fee, better than Verizon's plan that offers $10 per day. For example, if you use 2GB of LTE data in Mexico or Canada during March, you'll have 3GB remaining.

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.

The mobile carrier has announced that you can now call anywhere in the US, Canada and Mexico and you will not be charged any extra, the calls will be part of your plan. The company will also send you an alert when you've used up 80 percent and 100 percent of your LTE data.

If you have any more queries on the change and how it will reflect on your mobile usage, you can check the dedicated T-Mobile FAQ page to get all the answers. After 5GB, you will still have unlimited data at Simple Global speeds (up to 128kbps or 256kbps if you have ONE Plus).
