Previously, T-Mobile customers had access to unlimited LTE data in Canada or Mexico and were only subject to throttling at 50GB or more of usage.

T-Mobile states that less than one percent of its customers that use Mobile Without Borders go over 5GB. Starting on 12 November, the LTE speed will drop to 256Kbps for Oneplus users and 128Kbps for other users after the daily limit has been reached.

Users can still enjoy unlimited calling and texting within Canada and Mexico with the new rollout.

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. After T-Mobile introduced unlimited Netflix streaming earlier this week, this plan comes as a slap to travelers who spend their time watching youtube videos or business owners relying on unlimited LTE data plans.

It's not shocking that T-Mobile would do this. For T-Mobile One customers, the One Plus worldwide option can be added for an extra $25 per month, and that'll get you unlimited high-speed data when venturing across the border. In order to prevent usage beyond the intent of the product, we implemented a limit on the amount of monthly 4G LTE data. The T-Mobile One users can purchase the high-speed global LTE access an added rate of $25 for a month.

The Mobile Without Borders service first appeared as part of T-Mobile's Simple Choice plan in 2015, and it came as an extension to the company's worldwide roaming incentives.

T-Mobile customers can track their LTE usage in Canada and Mexico by dialing the short code #WEB# on their phone.

The plan is named 'Mobile Without Borders' and it lets the customers be connected even while they travel to Mexico and Canada.
