Google on Tuesday announced that all Project Fi subscribers have access to high speed data in 135+ destinations. With the addition of Three to the Project Fi network, you are now able to deliver speeds 10 – 20 X 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.
When you’re traveling abroad, your smartphone is an essential tool for finding a great restaurant, posting pics of your trip online or translating a sign. But the data you 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, instead choosing to jump between Wi-Fi hotspots or scramble for a local SIM card.
Google also offering more coverage internationally, with service in more than a dozen additional countries totaling 135+ destinations worldwide. Fi customers now have access to high speed data in over 97% of the places Americans travel internationally.
Google had unveiled Project Fi mobile telephone network in April last year in a bid to curb use of expensive roaming data and keep phone bills low. After few months of testing, company opened the service up for all users in March this year, and launched in partnerships with Sprint and T-Mobile.
However this service works only on the Nexus 6P, Nexus 6 and Nexus 5X smartphones and the company has launched an adjacent offer to push Project Fi further.
For a limited time, Project Fi is offering a discount of $150 off our normal price for the Nexus 6P, with activation required. If you purchase a Nexus 6P from fi.google.com, the discounted price will automatically apply during checkout. You must then activate Fi service on the same account within 30 days of device shipment, or an additional $150 will be charged to your Google Payments account to match the full price of the device. There is no minimum activation time needed to be eligible for the discount.
The offer is valid until July 19th, 2016, while supplies last for U.S. residents ages 18 and older with a Google Payments account. There is a limit of 1 discounted Nexus 6P per customer, this offer cannot be combined with other offers and terms are subject to applicable laws. The offer is void where prohibited.
Project Fi is a new wireless experience from Google designed to help you get the highest-quality connection, enable easy communication across networks and devices and make the service experience as simple as possible.
