Mobile telecommunications company, T-Mobile, is about to put a 5GB cap on high-speed internet service in Canada and Mexico. This data cap will affect T-Mobile’s Mobile Without Borders plan, an add-on plan with unlimited call and text, and unlimited 4G LTE data usage for no extra charge. T-Mobile’s 5GB cap on 4G LTE data service will take effect on November 12 to customers of T-Mobile One, One Plus, Simple Choice, and legacy rate plans.

“Starting November 12, 2017 customers on T-Mobile One, Simple Choice North America, or legacy rate plans with a qualifying feature will receive unlimited talk, text, and data with a maximum of 5GB of 4G LTE. After 5 GB of high-speed data is used in Mexico and Canada (or your high-speed data allotment is reached, whichever comes first), customers will stay connected with unlimited data at Simple Global speeds (up to 128kbps for most plans or 256kbps with T-Mobile ONE Plus),” stated by T-Mobile at their official support web page.

Customers who consumed the 5GB 4G LTE data allotment will stay connected with unlimited data at reduced speed via Simple Global speeds at no extra charge. The company stated that less than one percent of people with this benefits travel to Mexico and Canada use over 5GB a month, indicating its small impact to customers.
