Mobile cuts LTE roaming in Canada and Mexico to 5GB

The move affects all customers on its T-Mobile ONE, Simple Choice North America, or legacy rate plans with roaming. After burning through 5GB, your speeds will drop to just 128kbps (or 256kbps if you have a T-Mobile One Plus plan).

T-Mobile offered Mobile Without Borders Un-carrier plan which introduced free calling texting and LTE plans for travelers in Mexico, Canada, and US. T-Mobile notes you can still pay for the One Plus International add-on and get unlimited LTE in Mexico and Canada. 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.

That roaming data was specifically for Mexico and Canada. The subscribers can approach unlimited LTE by adding One Plus worldwide but it would cost you $25 monthly on the top of your base plan.

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".

One of the things that helped T-Mobile to grow so fast was the reintroduction of unlimited data plans. 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. After 5GB, you will still have unlimited data at Simple Global speeds (up to 128kbps or 256kbps if you have ONE Plus). For instance, if a user has used 2 GB of LTE data in Canada or Mexico during February, he will have 3G remaining.

Starting in November, there will be a new limit added to the carrier's T-Mobile ONE and T-Mobile ONE Plus plans. However, the company says the data cap has now been imposed in an effort to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product". Well, the 5 GB LTE data limit is a healthy amount though for a short visit.
