Project Fi adds high speed data for international markets, $150 discount on Nexus 6P

Project Fi

After making some major improvements to its coverage in the US, Project Fi is turning its focus to international markets with some huge updates today. Starting today Fi customers will have access to faster data speeds worldwide, thanks in part to help from Google’s partnership with European carrier Three.

Previously Fi customers only had access to 2G speeds when traveling outside of the United States, but these updates to the service give customers access to both 3G and 4G LTE data in 135+ countries around the world including popular destinations such as Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, and London.

Despite this major change, pricing will remain the same with a $20/month base charge followed by $10/GB after that. If you act fast, you can pick up the Fi-compatible Nexus 6P at a massive discount over on Amazon, today only. Project Fi will also be offering $150 off the price of a Nexus 6P for the next week.

When you’re traveling abroad, your phone is an essential tool – for finding a great restaurant, posting pics of your trip online, or translating a sign. But the data we have access to when traveling abroad often isn’t fast or affordable enough to let us do the tasks that matter most. Which could be why only 20% of Americans opt to use their cellular data when traveling internationally,1 instead choosing to jump between Wi-Fi hotspots or scramble for a local SIM card.

Starting today, all Project Fi subscribers have access to high speed data in 135+ destinations. With the addition of Three to the Project Fi network, we’re now able to deliver speeds 10-20X faster than before. And, just as before, there are no extra fees for using data internationally – you pay the same $10/GB that you do at home.
