Less than 1% of people with this benefit travel to Mexico and Canada use over 5GB a month. That's thanks to the company's Mobile Without Borders perk, which was implemented in 2015.
Once you reach the new 5GB limit of high-speed data in Canada and Mexico (or your high-speed data allotment is reached, whichever comes first), connection speeds will be throttled to just 128kbps, or 256kbps for T-Mobile One Plus customers.
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.
Google Explains Why the Pixel 2 Does Not Have a Headphone Jack
After months of rumours and speculation, Google has finally lifted the lid on its new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones . Talking about the camera samples, we are really impressed with the quality of both the still images and videos.
It's not shocking that T-Mobile would do this. The data services wouldn't be stopped after 5 GB however the 128 Kbps speed that you would get would make it impossible to use the data service.
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. The move affects all customers on its T-Mobile ONE, Simple Choice North America, or legacy rate plans with roaming.
In a statement, T-Mobile framed this change as a way to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product". You can also check overall data usage by dialing the short code #WEB# on your device.

If you fall into that 1 percent, however, you can add the T-Mobile One Plus International option to your plan for $25 per month. After the users have exceeded 80% of the 5GB limit, they will be sent an alert message from T-Mobile.
The plan is named 'Mobile Without Borders' and it lets the customers be connected even while they travel to Mexico and Canada.
