    So he's actually doing us a favor, providing a service so to speak? How kind, what a giver!

    Up to 5GB of high speed data in Mexico and Canada, after that its 256 KB/sec
    If you are like me, I can easily gobble it up.
    Oh those were the days when T-Mobile gave out unlimited high speed data Mexico and Canada, those were the good days.

    That's why I use my AT&T line in Mexico...
    6 days of data in Mexico costs me nothing extra.
    But if they're only there to live it up in Playa del Carmen for 6 days then they can handle it. They already paid up to live it up...

    5GB on T-Mobile vs. 22GB on AT&T...
    **After 22GB usage (including usage in Canada and Mexico), AT&T may slow speeds.

    For the amount that AT&T's unlimited plans are, I could buy a whole lot of day plans. AT&T's current base 'unlimited' plans start at $40/line and don't include taxes/fees. I have 4 lines on T-Mobile One, and play $140 including fees.
    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    That's still 4 times what I get than if I had T-Mobile...and the "slow speeds" definitely isn't 256kb/sec.
    The fact that AT&T may slow speeds after 22 GB is the least of my worries..

    Not sure if I want to spend my money buying a whole lot of day plans...
    $5/day isn't bad, but it adds up quickly..and opens up the possibility of being kicked off again...
    They already know who I am...

    $5/day x 6 days =$30. At&ts plan would cost me $20/month more than I pay TMobile, and that's not including fees.
