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.

Starting November 12, the company says a 5GB cap will be implemented, which will impact the minority of Canadians using the plan here. The company will also send you an alert when you've used up 80 percent and 100 percent of your LTE data.

T-Mobile customers can track their LTE usage in Canada and Mexico by dialing the short code #WEB# on their phone.

We already know that T-Mobile's unlimited plans have limits, just like they do at every other wireless carrier.


It's not astonishing at all if T-Mobile took this step as the network still pays roaming costs.

"Mobile Without Borders is an incredible benefit and allows customers to stay connected when traveling in Canada and Mexico". One of those options was the Mobile Without Borders plan that provided unlimited LTE data when customers traveled to Canada or Mexico. It's not entirely clear what "beyond the intent of the product" means, but it's clear T-Mobile is cracking down on a specific type of customer. While the plan previously accommodated for unlimited data, now the carrier will be limiting that to just 5GB.

Starting on November 12th, T-Mobile's Mobile Without Borders plan will be getting a 5GB data cap on LTE speeds when users visit the US's neighbors to the north and south. And, when you're in Mexico & Canada, you'll use 4G LTE data straight from your Simple Choice 4G LTE data plan. After you hit that 5GB data limit, you will be throttled to barely usable 128Kbps speeds, or 256Kbps for T-Mobile One Plus subscribers (this speed will still allow you sending texts on Facebook Messenger and Whatsapp, but little else).
