Mobile kills unlimited data usage when traveling to Canada and Mexico

16 October 2017

For those people always traveling to Mexico and Canada and are on T-Mobile, sorry to say but the Un-Carrier is cutting your LTE roaming. "Mobile Without Borders" was actually an extension of T-Mobile's global data roaming free services that were introduced in 2013. T-Mobile One customers that don't want to take a chance with the data cap can get unlimited high-speed worldwide LTE for an extra $25 per month. It was nearly like traveling out of state and not overseas.

After years of floundering, T-Mobile has become a real threat to Verizon and AT&T by offering options that the latter carriers didn't. However, it looks like the wireless carrier will be falling in line, as it is downgrading one of its benefits that it started almost two years ago called Mobile Without Borders. 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.

Customers will now have a maximum LTE data limit of 5 GB in Mexico and Canada, after which they will be reduced to Simple Global speeds, meaning up to 128 kbps for most plans or 256 kbps with T-Mobile ONE Plus.

This meant that using your phone or making a call in Canada, Mexico, and the US would be "just like going out of state", T-Mobile CEO John Legere said at the time.

But from now, Twitter users will be able to bookmark the tweets so they can do whatever they want with the bookmarked tweets . Twitter's move to add bookmarking to its service comes just weeks after the company began to test longer tweets .

T-Mobile has made this change which will only affect one percent of the people traveling to Mexico and Canada.

"Mobile Without Borders is an incredible benefit and allows customers to stay connected when traveling in Canada and Mexico", T-Mobile said.

Many probably saw this coming, as customers roaming on LTE in Canada would mean T-Mobile paying its roaming partners here, and for a small number of users exploiting the plan, the free ride looks to have come to an end. You can also check your LTE data usage with a shortcode #WEB# from your mobile.

T-Mobile this week announced some changes to its "Mobile Without Borders" initiative.
