Mobile Caps High-Speed Data At 5GB While Roaming In Canada, Mexico

Mobile Caps High-Speed Data At 5GB While Roaming In Canada, Mexico

"After 5GB of high-speed data is used in Mexico and Canada (or your high-speed data allotment is reached, whichever comes first), customers will stay connected with unlimited data at Simple Global speeds (up to 128kbps for most plans or 256kbps with T-Mobile ONE Plus)".

One of T-Mobile's big "uncarrier" moves was to offer worldwide roaming data to most customers for free.

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. 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. The users would not run into overages but they will have to compromise with the speed as it'll automatically slow down the speed to 128 Kbps on being exceeding the given high-speed allotment. However, when you get billed again, it'll go back up to 5GB.

You can find out more details about the latest Uncarrier offering from T-Mobile over at their website at the link below. This change not only affects T-Mobile ONE customers, but those locked into an older Simple Choice plan as well. Starting on 12 November, the LTE speed will drop to 256Kbps for Oneplus users and 128Kbps for other users after the daily limit has been reached.

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

In a statement, T-Mobile framed this change as a way to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product".

T-Mobile had been offering worldwide roaming data to most of its customers for free, in an effort to attract customers from other networks since 2015 under the plan, "Mobile Without Borders". Is 5 GB more than enough anyway?
