Default T Mobile Tethering ?

What happens when I am tethering and I reach my limit of 5GB. Do I get throttled, and if so do I get slowed to 3G or 2G? Or am I not able to tethering anymore? I have the nexus 5 on the T Mobile network. I haven't had the phone for over a month yet and I am no where near reach my tether limit. I just want to know in case there is a month where I am tethering alot

You'd have to check your plans details.
