Mobile puts a cap on high-speed data roaming in Canada, Mexico

This meant that using your phone or making a call in Canada, Mexico, and the USA would be "just like going out of state", T-Mobile CEO John Legere said at the time.

T-Mobile has done a lot over the years to back-up its claim of being an "Un-carrier", offering perks and options that big rivals Verizon and AT&T don't come close to. One subscriber can attach unlimited LTE by including One Plus International, however, that is another $25 every month over the base plan. We all know that "unlimited" really isn't unlimited though and when the T-Mobile One plan debuted it had a cap of 32GB of use per month before data prioritization.

The change comes into effect on November 12, 2017, and hits customers on T-Mobile One, One Plus, Simple Choice, and legacy rate plans.

Additionally, those with topped plans can never again utilize their Data Stash while in Canada or Mexico.It's not surprising that T-Mobile would do this. 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.

Now in order to prevent "usage beyond the intent of the product", AKA a Netflix binge-watch while soaking up the sun in Cancun, the mobile carrier has announced that it is doing away with unlimited LTE on November 12. All the same, this limits T-Mobile's interest to jet-setters.

Additionally, you may have fewer data to enjoy with on the off chance that you aren't subscribed to an unlimited plan.

The mobile carrier said that it wants to improve and make a decision to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product".
