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

T-Mobile is about to add a new limit to its unlimited plans

T-Mobile cuts LTE roaming in Canada and Mexico to 5GB

The company T-Mobile unveiled that from November 12, it will bind the unlimited LTE data to 5 GB monthly at the time of traveling to USA neighbors.

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

T-Mobile customers can track their LTE usage in Canada and Mexico by dialing the short code #WEB# on their phone. This was intended to provide the same LTE data limits when roaming in North America as when using LTE in the United States, and when combined with T-Mobile's subsequent Unlimited plan, this meant unlimited LTE data when traveling in Canada and Mexico.

Flight 666 lands in HEL for final time
Most avoid the number 666 out of irrational fear and superstition or completely embrace it like metal group Iron Maiden. The last time the flight happened on Friday the 13th was in January. "It's only a coincidence for me".


T-Mobile had been offering global 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". 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. It's not unlimited LTE but it appears subscribers have been consuming large amounts. If you're still on a plan with Data Stash, that's not usable in Canada and Mexico anymore.

If you are on a high-speed plan with 10GB data per month, you will get only 4GB data. In case you do not want to pay the extra fees to T-Mobile, you can purchase a new SIM card if you are in these countries for a longer duration of time, however, you would have to manage with a different number. This move isn't surprising when you consider T-Mobile is pushing unlimited plans more aggressively than it was in 2015. Customers on that unlimited plan and many of T-Mobile's other plans had access to data in other countries baked in if they needed it.

If you have 10GB high speed data total and use 2 GB the United States before heading over the border, then you still only have up to 5GB high-speed data in Mexico and Canada combined. "In order to prevent usage beyond the intent of the product, we implemented a limit on the amount of monthly 4G LTE data", T-Mobile wrote on its support site. Is 5 GB more than enough anyway?
