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

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".

T-Mobile has announced its latest Uncarrier initiative which is called "Mobile without Borders", the company is doing away with extra call charges across North America. All the same, this does limit T-Mobile's appeal to jetsetters.

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. In case you are on a T-Mobile One Plus plan, you will receive 256 Kbps after the data cap is exhausted. There is no mention if it's temporary or permanent but T-Mobile will need to work on some issues first.

T-Mobile offered Mobile Without Borders Un-carrier plan which introduced free calling texting and LTE plans for travelers in Mexico, Canada, and US.

Go from NY to Canada, or from California to Mexico; it's just like going from Idaho to Texas, from Georgia to Kentucky. For example, T-Mobile limits the amount of guaranteed full-speed LTE data its subscribers can use during a billing period to 50GB. Also, those with capped plans can no longer use their Data Stash while in Canada or Mexico (though any unused data will carry over).

For example, if you have 4GB high-speed data total and you use 2GB in the U.S., you have another 2 GB high-speed data to use in Mexico and Canada.

The company went on to say that "less than 1 percent of people with this benefit travel to Mexico and Canada use over 5GB a month".

"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.
