Mobile's Mobile Without Borders now maxes at 5GB of 4G LTE data

T-Mobile has put the brakes on their popular North America voice and data plan, which offered American customers unlimited LTE roaming in Canada and Mexico. You won't keep running into overages (this is T-Mobile), however, you'll need to manage with speeds as low as 128 Kbps on the off chance that you go over your fast allotment.

The idea of Mobile Without Borders is to allow those on a valid T-Mobile plan to take advantage of calling, texting, and using data in Canada and Mexico without restrictions.

The users can access to less data if they aren't subscribed to an unlimited plan, for example, a customer with 6 GB cap will only have 4 GB to utilize in overseas in case the 2 GB has already consumed.

Starting November 12, the company says a 5GB cap will be implemented, which will impact the minority of Canadians using the plan here.

T-Mobile has been known over the past few years to introduce new Un-carrier movements that provide benefits to the customer, differentiating itself from the competition. "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. A customer with a 6GB limit will only have 4GB to use overseas if they've already burned through 2GB, for instance. "Less than 1 percent of people with this benefit travel to Mexico and Canada use over 5GB a month". The balance of 3GB can be used once the customer returns to the United States.

Do you think this is an unfair move from T-Mobile? T-Mobile has been chief among those trying to quash their rivals, making some very competitive moves in order to secure subscribers.
