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. After T-Mobile introduced unlimited Netflix streaming earlier this week, this plan comes as a slap to travelers who spend their time watching youtube videos or business owners relying on unlimited LTE data plans.
T-Mobile customers can track their LTE usage in Canada and Mexico by dialing the short code #WEB# on their phone.
T-Mobile has stopped its unlimited data packages in Canada and Mexico, and slapped a cap on its LTE data. You can use your remaining 3GB high speed data when you return to the US.
While you still won't have pay roaming charges, depending on your plan Simple Global speeds may put you in the 128kbps hell zone where you'll feel like you've been transported back to the Stone Age. While 5GB is a healthy amount for a short trip, it's still going to change your behavior - you may end up using hotel WiFi when you can instead of relying exclusively on cellular data.
If you have any more queries on the change and how it will reflect on your mobile usage, you can check the dedicated T-Mobile FAQ page to get all the answers. Once the cap is reached, you will be switched to Simple Global speeds only.
T-Mobile has been luring in customers via a series of big promotions and major perks, and the growing number of subscribers is evidence that this is working.
We already know that T-Mobile's unlimited plans have limits, just like they do at every other wireless carrier.
As for why T-Mobile is making this change, it wrote "Mobile Without Borders is an incredible benefit and allows customers to stay connected when traveling in Canada and Mexico".
Starting in November, there will be a new limit added to the carrier's T-Mobile ONE and T-Mobile ONE Plus plans.
The mobile carrier has announced that you can now call anywhere in the US, Canada and Mexico and you will not be charged any extra, the calls will be part of your plan. Is 5 GB more than enough anyway?
