Mobile puts 5GB cap on high-speed data in Canada and Mexico

Mobile puts 5GB cap on high-speed data in Canada and Mexico

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

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

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.

A spotlight on how Canadians were using T-Mobile cellular plans was highlighted earlier this year by Vice Money, which showed how for $50 United States dollars, one could get a plan with unlimited data, text and calls in Canada, the USA and Mexico. It was nearly like traveling out of state and not overseas. For example, T-Mobile limits the amount of guaranteed full-speed LTE data its subscribers can use during a billing period to 50GB.

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.

In order to prevent usage beyond the intent of the product, T-Mobile has unveiled this new plan which will affect T-Mobile ONE, SImple Choice and Legacy plan users.

The users can access to less data if they aren't subscribed to an unlimited plan, for example, a customer with 6 GB cap will only have 4 GB to utilize in overseas in case the 2 GB has already consumed.

"Mobile Without Borders is an incredible benefit and allows customers to stay connected when traveling in Canada and Mexico". What happens if you reach that 5GB limit?

Starting November 12, the company says a 5GB cap will be implemented, which will impact the minority of Canadians using the plan here. You can also check your LTE data usage with a shortcode #WEB# from your mobile.
