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


Less than 1% of people with this benefit travel to Mexico and Canada use over 5GB a month.

T-Mobile is bringing to an end one of its more generous perks that gave customers traveling to Canada and Mexico free unlimited LTE service.

If you really need more than that data, you can still purchase high-speed global LTE data for an additional $25. You'll be even able to tap into your Data Stash in Mexico & Canada starting later this year. T-Mobile has been chief among those trying to quash their rivals, making some very competitive moves in order to secure subscribers. T-Mobile has recently announced that, from 12th November, it will top the no-additional-charge LTE data to a maximum of 5GB every month while you're going to the US' neighbors.

The company said that less than than 1 percent of people with Mobile Without Borders travel to Mexico and Canada and use more than 5GB a month, indicating the cap will have little impact on its customers.


T-Mobile is one of those carriers that like "breaking away" from its competition by coming out with a pretty good sale or coming up with a major perk that other carriers don't dare to do.

Two years on and the Uncarrier has made a decision to slap a monthly limit of 5GB on LTE data before throttling speeds. Why?

A spotlight on how Canadians were using T-Mobile cellular plans was highlighted earlier this year by Vice Money, which showed how for $50 Dollars, one could get a plan with unlimited data, text and calls in Canada, the US and Mexico. After the users have exceeded 80% of the 5GB limit, they will be sent an alert message from T-Mobile. The subscribers can approach unlimited LTE by adding One Plus global but it would cost you $25 monthly on the top of your base plan.
