Mobile drops unlimited LTE perk for trips to Canada and Mexico

Mobile drops unlimited LTE perk for trips to Canada and Mexico

T-Mobile states that less than one percent of its customers that use Mobile Without Borders go over 5GB.

T-Mobile unveiled Mobile Without Borders to great fanfare in 2015, a plan for customers that added unlimited calling, texting, and 4G LTE data throughout Mexico and Canada at no extra cost.

That roaming data was specifically for Mexico and Canada. All the same, this limits T-Mobile's interest to jet-setters. For T-Mobile One customers, the One Plus global option can be added for an extra $25 per month, and that'll get you unlimited high-speed data when venturing across the border.

The Mobile Without Borders service first appeared as part of T-Mobile's Simple Choice plan in 2015, and it came as an extension to the company's worldwide roaming incentives. 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. "In order to prevent usage beyond the intent of the product", according to T-Mobile.

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. You can also check overall data usage by dialing the short code #WEB# on your device. We all know that "unlimited" really isn't unlimited though and when the T-Mobile One plan debuted it had a cap of 32GB of use per month before data prioritization. After the users have exceeded 80% of the 5GB limit, they will be sent an alert message from T-Mobile.

Additionally, those with topped plans can never again utilize their Data Stash while in Canada or Mexico.It's not surprising that T-Mobile would do this.
