Mobile puts a cap on high-speed data roaming in Canada, Mexico

Once the cap is reached, you will be switched to Simple Global speeds only.

LTE roaming in Mexico and Canada is being downgraded to 5GB/month, and the change takes effect on November 12.

The company T-Mobile has provided the information about usage breakdowns on its official website that is visible to all people.

The change affects all customers on T-Mobile One, Simple Choice, and legacy rate plans.

A spotlight on how Canadians were using T-Mobile cellular plans was highlighted earlier this year by Vice Money, which showed how for $50 Dollars, one could get a plan with unlimited data, text and calls in Canada, the US and Mexico. The users can estimate how much they would be affected while traveling overseas.

T-Mobile customers can track their LTE usage in Canada and Mexico by dialing the short code #WEB# on their phone. However, this is a monthly fee, better than Verizon's plan that offers $10 per day.

The users can access to less data if they aren't subscribed to an unlimited plan, for example, a customer with 6 GB cap will only have 4 GB to utilize in overseas in case the 2 GB has already consumed.

T-Mobile had been offering worldwide roaming data to most of its customers for free, in an effort to attract customers from other networks since 2015 under the plan, "Mobile Without Borders".

T-Mobile has stopped its unlimited data packages in Canada and Mexico, and slapped a cap on its LTE data.

"Mobile Without Borders is an incredible benefit and allows customers to stay connected when traveling in Canada and Mexico", T-Mobile said. "Less than 1% of people with this benefit travel to Mexico and Canada use over 5GB a month".

The best Unlimited Plan crown has been fiercely contested in 2017, with many carriers launching new offers to try and one-up each other. The company will also send you an alert when you've used up 80 percent and 100 percent of your LTE data. This move isn't surprising when you consider T-Mobile is pushing unlimited plans more aggressively than it was in 2015.
