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

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

T-Mobile provides usage breakdowns on its website so you can see exactly how this new setup will affect you if you do travel out of the country and use LTE while overseas, and if you're part of that one-percent that uses more than 5GB of data while visiting Mexico or Canada, you can purchase T-Mobile's ONE Plus International add-on for $25 extra per line per month to keep your unlimited LTE when in these two countries. T-Mobile says it will throttle the customer to 128Kbps with the exception of T-Mobile ONE Plus customers, who will receive 256Kbps speeds.

After you hit the 5GB cap (or less for some legacy plans), you will continue to get unlimited data; it'll just be very, very slow data.

The offered 5 GB data allotment is replenished with each billing cycle for Canada and Mexico.

- John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile in 2015.

T-Mobile customers can track their LTE usage in Canada and Mexico by dialing the short code #WEB# on their phone. The move affects all customers on its T-Mobile ONE, Simple Choice North America, or legacy rate plans with roaming. This plan was offered only for United States citizens with a One or One Plus Mobile.

Note that you can get unlimited LTE in Mexico and Canada by adding One Plus International to your account, but at $25 a month, that option isn't exactly cheap. All the same, this does limit T-Mobile's appeal to jetsetters.

Only 1% Users Affected With This Plan - T-Mobile Mobile Without Borders is an incredible benefit and allows customers to stay connected when traveling in Canada and Mexico.

T-Mobile has made this change which will only affect one percent of the people traveling to Mexico and Canada.

We already know that T-Mobile's unlimited plans have limits, just like they do at every other wireless carrier. You can also check your LTE data usage with a shortcode #WEB# from your mobile. T-Mobile has been chief among those trying to quash their rivals, making some very competitive moves in order to secure subscribers.
