Mobile adds another limit to its 'unlimited' data plans

Mobile adds another limit to its 'unlimited' data plans

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

T-Mobile has announced its latest Uncarrier initiative which is called "Mobile without Borders", the company is doing away with extra call charges across North America.

The reason for this downgrade in data availability, according to Engadget, is that T-Mobile needs to pay heavy roaming costs in these countries. Once that threshold is reached, the carrier may prioritize (throttle) data speeds during periods of congestion. In case you are on a T-Mobile One Plus plan, you will receive 256 Kbps after the data cap is exhausted. T-Mobile ONE Plus plan holders will see their data speeds slowed to 256Kbps, while T-Mobile ONE subs will have their speeds slowed all the way down to just 128Kbps.

T-Mobile has stopped its unlimited data packages in Canada and Mexico, and slapped a cap on its LTE data. Instead, subscribers will get just 5GB of guaranteed full-speed LTE data before their data speeds are throttled. After the users have exceeded 80% of the 5GB limit, they will be sent an alert message from T-Mobile. However, this is a monthly fee, better than Verizon's plan that offers $10 per day. The carrier did state that "less than 1% of people" on the plan used over 5GB a month when traveling.

It further rapped the government saying that there is a need to strike a balance between human rights and national security. Close to 40,000 Rohingya Muslims live in India after fleeing Myanmar over the past decade.

Starting on November 12th, T-Mobile is altering its "Mobile without Borders" program for all customers on One, Simple Choice, and other legacy plans with roaming.

In a statement, T-Mobile framed this change as a way to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product". If you're still on a plan with Data Stash, that's not usable in Canada and Mexico anymore.

T-Mobile subscribers got some fantastic news earlier this week.

Note that you can get unlimited LTE in Mexico and Canada by adding One Plus International to your account, but at $25 a month, that option isn't exactly cheap.
