Mobile is about to add a new limit to its unlimited plans

Mobile is about to add a new limit to its unlimited plans”

The 5GB data allotment for Mexico and Canada is replenished with every billing cycle.

The carrier explained that it is making this change "in order to prevent usage beyond the intent of the product" - that is, it intended customers to have access to the high-speed data they needed while in Canada and Mexico, but apparently didn't want them using too much of it...too much in this case being defined as 5GB.

Separately, T-Mobile has been at odds with the other network carriers lately after claiming that its 4G LTE network is the fastest. This move isn't surprising when you consider T-Mobile is pushing unlimited plans more aggressively than it was in 2015. "If you are on a Legacy plan with a high-speed data maximum (i.e. 4GB, 6GB, 10GB), your data allowance is shared across the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, but you only have up to 5GB high-speed data in Mexico and Canada combined", the company said in a blog post. However, this is a monthly fee, better than Verizon's plan that offers $10 per day. Once the 5GB limit is exhausted, a customer can still enjoy the unlimited data at the speed of 128 kbps for most plans, or 256 kbps with T-Mobile ONE Plus.

What Will Be the Impact of The T-Mobile Plan for One and One Plus Users?

. T-Mobile notes you can still pay for the One Plus International add-on and get unlimited LTE in Mexico and Canada. Meanwhile, T-Mobile recently added free unlimited Netflix streaming to most of its T-Mobile ONE and T-Mobile ONE Plus plans, and it confirmed that its subscribers won't see any increases to the cost of their plans when Netflix's rate hike takes effect next month.

T-Mobile has made this change which will only affect one percent of the people traveling to Mexico and Canada. For those with old capped plans of 5GB or less, there's no change to the limit. You can also check your LTE data usage with a shortcode #WEB# from your mobile.

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