I got a warning from mts that my data is nearing the 15GB threshold, I am on the unlimited plan, will mts charge me if I go over that 15GB? Or does it just slow down?

No extra charges if you go over 15 GB in a billing period on your wireless plan if you are on an Unlimited Data or Flat Rate Data plan. Keep in mind though your speed will slow down significantly until the end of the billing period once you have used 15 GB of data.

Here is a little more info from the MTS website on how long you will be throttled when you go over;

If you exceed the thresholds of 10GB or 15GB (depending on the network you're on), speeds will be controlled on the day of the month the threshold is exceeded and will continue for the rest of the billing cycle.

For example, if your billing cycle starts on the 8th of each month and you exceed your threshold on the 25th, you will be subject to controlled speeds from the 25th through to the last day of your billing cycle, in this case, the 7th of the following month. The data counter will reset at midnight that night.

Your billing cycle can be determined in the Wireless Charges section of your bill. The range of dates for charges is your billing cycle.
