The change affects all customers on T-Mobile One, Simple Choice, and legacy rate plans.
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.
T-Mobile customers can track their LTE usage in Canada and Mexico by dialing the short code #WEB# on their phone.
T-Mobile provides usage breakdowns on its website so you can see exactly how this new setup will affect you if you do travel out of the country and use LTE while overseas, and if you're part of that one-percent that uses more than 5GB of data while visiting Mexico or Canada, you can purchase T-Mobile's ONE Plus International add-on for $25 extra per line per month to keep your unlimited LTE when in these two countries.
Kenyan Opposition Leader Withdraws From Election Rerun
The August 8 presidential poll was cancelled by Kenya's paramount court, which cited widespread "illegalities and irregularities". He has singled out the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for particular criticism, deeming it "rotten".
If you run out of data, the speed will be reduced to as low as 128 Kbps. It's not unlimited LTE but it appears subscribers have been consuming large amounts. For instance, if a user has used 2 GB of LTE data in Canada or Mexico during February, he will have 3G remaining. Once the cap is reached, you will be switched to Simple Global speeds only.
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. Also, the customers with the limited data plan can no longer make use of their Data Stash if he is in either of these two nations, though the unconsumed data will carry over. T-Mobile has now stepped in and is limiting the amount of roaming data available to people in those countries starting on November 12.
T-Mobile says that this change was made to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product"; reading between the lines likely means that customers were costing the company too much money on the roaming networks. For T-Mobile One customers, the One Plus global option can be added for an extra $25 per month, and that'll get you unlimited high-speed data when venturing across the border. Is 5 GB more than enough anyway?
