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.
This meant that using your phone or making a call in Canada, Mexico, and the US would be "just like going out of state", T-Mobile CEO John Legere said at the time.
T-Mobile is one of those carriers that like "breaking away" from its competition by coming out with a pretty good sale or coming up with a major perk that other carriers don't dare to do. T-Mobile has recently announced that, from 12th November, it will top the no-additional-charge LTE data to a maximum of 5GB every month while you're going to the US' neighbors. After T-Mobile introduced unlimited Netflix streaming earlier this week, this plan comes as a slap to travelers who spend their time watching youtube videos or business owners relying on unlimited LTE data plans. All the same, this limits T-Mobile's interest to jet-setters. The company will also send you an alert when you've used up 80 percent and 100 percent of your LTE data. While 5GB is a healthy amount for a short trip, it's still going to change your behavior - you may end up using hotel WiFi when you can instead of relying exclusively on cellular data.
In a statement, T-Mobile framed this change as a way to "prevent usage beyond the intent of the product".
Unity deal offers hope for Palestinians
It has fought three wars with Israel since 2008 and the blockaded Gaza Strip has seen deteriorating humanitarian conditions. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had previously insisted no unity government could be established before Hamas disarmed.
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.
As for why T-Mobile is making this change, it wrote "Mobile Without Borders is an incredible benefit and allows customers to stay connected when traveling in Canada and Mexico".
