Google's Project Fi expands global coverage to 170 countries

Project Fi new global roaming rules kill wild data bills

Prior to today, Project Fi was already available in 135 countries.

Project Fi, Google's multi-network cell service, now provides you with data coverage in 170 countries.

Luckily, Project Fi is running a deal to celebrate the addition of these new countries: score an $80 bill credit with the purchase of any Project Fi-compatible phone from the company's website. Here are all the newly supported Fi countries. Voice calls to the US from all supported countries cost $0.20/minute.

Immigration debate: Both sides can claim a political win, Varney says
It would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities and end immigration of extended family members, among other provisions. No. 2 Democrat Dick Durbin said it wasn't a "slam dunk" that all Democrats would support it.

Depending on how you count, there's just under 200 countries in the world.

If you're set to travel and want to know if your destination is covered by Fi, the answer is most likely yes. As far as I can see, neither Google's nor T-Mobile's plans cover Nauru, though, so if you're looking to see some depleted phosphate reserves in the middle of the Pacific, you are out of luck. In each of the cases, free roaming is covered while you're visiting. The company also revealed a new feature that automatically tells subscribers whether their planned global travel destination is compatible with their Project Fi plan, using flight data gleaned from Gmail. You don't have to worry about overages either, because Bill Protection caps you out at $80 per month, no matter what.

Another neat thing that global travelers get with Project Fi is automatic notifications of coverage depending on where you're traveling. This applies to worldwide data, too.
