Mexico is part of international roaming with the T-Mobile one plan so you should be fine.

For customers with $25 T-Mobile ONE Plus International (Grandfathered), unlimited high-speed LTE data while traveling in Mexico and Canada is included. Essentials: Unlimited talk & text to/from the US, Mexico & Canada Unlimited 2G data in Mexico & Canada (up to 128 kbps) and the new Magenta plan.

- Service isn't intended for extended or permanent use in Mexico or Canada. Extended use may result in being flagged as Extreme Roaming Reduction.

Set expectations

Due to Music Freedom partner licensing and availability, some services are unavailable for use while in Mexico and Canada. Check Music Freedom Streaming.

Customers on grandfathered $25 ONE Plus International get unlimited 4G LTE high-speed data. This feature is grandfathered and no longer available for sale.


Tethering usage in Canada or Mexico doesn't impact tethering usage in the US.

Tethering usage deducts from the 5 GB bucket while in Canada or Mexico.

Tethering usage in Canada or Mexico also counts towards Fair Usage limits.

I hope these can help 🙂

Thank you
