Project Fi expands worldwide coverage to 170 markets


Worldwide phone service is generally something no one wants to talk about. In each of the cases, free roaming is covered while you're visiting. Google's Project Fi, on the other hand, is taking a more laid back approach to global coverage.

One of Project Fi's goals since launch has been to support some pretty substantial global coverage, with more than 100 countries across the globe supported with free roaming. We covered some of the new aspects of that feature recently, including new "unlimited" data for Project Fi, but this time Google is bumping up the number of countries that are covered under their worldwide data packages. If you're planning a trip, you can also search for your specific destination to see if you've got coverage there, saving you the time of combing through almost 200 locations just to see if yours is on the list. A complete list of locations covered by Project Fi can be found over on Project Fi's rates page. As Choi notes, users will receive a notification in the Project Fi app shortly before a trip that shows coverage options and costs.

If you're a Fi customer, you don't need to do anything to your account to enable worldwide support - it's just there.

I've personally still held off on subscribing to Project Fi due other carriers having better deals for large family plans, but with updates like this, it's becoming more and more enticing with each day that passes.
