Mobile puts a cap on fast mobile data

Share

As with most, if not all, so-called unlimited data plans the T-Mobile ONE and T-Mobile ONE Plus are limited in some ways.

That's a pretty sweet deal indeed, but now we have some bad news from T-Mobile: Beginning next month, there will be a new limit added to one of the perks for the company's unlimited plans. The feature was and still is available to certain T-Mobile subscribers, but that will be changing on November 12. Once the cap is reached, you will be switched to Simple Global speeds only. 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. Instead, subscribers will get just 5GB of guaranteed full-speed LTE data before their data speeds are throttled.

T-Mobile offered Mobile Without Borders Un-carrier plan which introduced free calling texting and LTE plans for travelers in Mexico, Canada, and US. One of those options was the Mobile Without Borders plan that provided unlimited LTE data when customers traveled to Canada or Mexico. While 5GB is a healthy amount for a short trip, it's still going to change your behavior - you may end up using hotel WiFi when you can instead of relying exclusively on cellular data. This plan was offered only for USA citizens with a One or One Plus Mobile.

Starting next month, customers will have a 5GB LTE data roaming cap, which will affect less than 1-percent of its customers who travel to either country, according to the carrier.

After unveiling a new "Mobile Without Borders" deal in 2015 to all ONE and ONE Plus customers, you've been able to enjoy that oh so sweet LTE data overseas in Mexico and Canada.

In case you are in a plan with data stash, which allows you to accumulate data, the data will not be usable in Canada or Mexico anymore.

In a statement, T-Mobile framed this change as a way to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product".
