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

Starting on November 12th, the Mobile Without Borders plan will introduce a 5GB LTE data cap on unlimited customers when they're visiting Canada and Mexico.

In case you need high-speed data on your T-Mobile number, you would need to go for another $25 on the top of the base plan. So in this situation, if you have visited Canada or Mexico you were provided as much LTE data as you ever wanted without any fear of paying back to a huge phone bill.

T-Mobile has stopped its unlimited data packages in Canada and Mexico, and slapped a cap on its LTE data. The subscribers can approach unlimited LTE by adding One Plus worldwide but it would cost you $25 monthly on the top of your base plan.

The mobile carrier has announced that you can now call anywhere in the US, Canada and Mexico and you will not be charged any extra, the calls will be part of your plan.

If you run out of data, the speed will be reduced to as low as 128 Kbps.

Go from NY to Canada, or from California to Mexico; it's just like going from Idaho to Texas, from Georgia to Kentucky.

Patriots QB Brady has ailing shoulder
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed practice Tuesday, but is expected to be fine Sunday to face the Jets . The 40-year-old Brady leads the National Football League with 1,702 passing yards.

If you are on a high-speed plan with 10GB data per month, you will get only 4GB data.

If you have any more queries on the change and how it will reflect on your mobile usage, you can check the dedicated T-Mobile FAQ page to get all the answers.

One of T-Mobile's more generous offers was born out of its "Mobile Without Borders" plan.

The reason for this downgrade in data availability, according to Engadget, is that T-Mobile needs to pay heavy roaming costs in these countries. After that, they'll be switched over to "Simple Global speeds" aka, their data will be throttled.

T-Mobile said that this move had been made "in order to prevent usage beyond the intent of the product", and noted that "less than one percent of people with this benefit travel to Mexico and Canada use over 5 GB a month". Well, the 5 GB LTE data limit is a healthy amount though for a short visit.
