Project Fi Increases International Data Speeds 10 To 20 Times, Offers $150 Off Nexus 6P For A Week
Google’s Project Fi today announced that international data speeds will be faster starting today. Project Fi increases international data speeds 10 to 20 times thanks to partnering with mobile network operator Three. In addition to offering faster data when traveling abroad, Project Fi also increases the number of countries where their customers can roam. Previously, Project Fi customers were able to roam at 2G speeds in more than 120 countries and now they can get service at faster 3G/4G speeds in more than 135 countries.
Project Fi doesn’t charge access to data when traveling abroad except the regular $10 per 1 GB fee that they charge in the US. The carrier also says that with this latest international coverage expansion, Project Fi covers more than 97% of the countries where Americans travel.
To make this new feature even more appealing, new Project Fi customers will be able to purchase a Nexus 6P for $349, which is $150 off of its regular cost, and activate it with Project Fi’s prepaid service. The offer will start being effective at 10:00 am PT today and will last for a week.
Besides Nexus 6P, Project Fi is also compatible with Nexus 5X and Nexus 6. The carrier is offering unlimited talk, text and international texts for $20 per month while data are available at 1GB for $10 per month rate.
Couple of weeks ago, Project Fi has added U.S. Cellular network to its existing Sprint’s, T-Mobile’s and WiFi coverage. With U.S. Cellular, a regional mobile network operator, Project Fi gained additional cellular coverage in 23 states. Its service used to be available for invites only but recently, the carrier has opened it for everyone.
