Last month, Project Fi officially rolled out support for the regional carrier U.S. Cellular, expanding the service’s reach in a variety of states. Now Google has announced that a new international focus will bring faster data speeds for Project Fi subscribers.
Beginning today, Project Fi users can get high-speed data in over 135 international markets. That’s thanks in part to a new partnership with the carrier Three, which should make data speeds up to 20 times faster than was previously available for users.
The full list of supported countries is right here. What’s more, the faster international data won’t cost users any additional money. It’s still just $10 per gigabyte.
Of course, Google felt compelled to celebrate the announcement, so they’re offering a discount on the Nexus 6P. $150 off, to be exact, which means the device will start at $349. The offer officially begins today, July 12, at 10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET, and you’ll need to sign up for Project Fi to get the discount applied to the handset. If you decide to end your Project Fi service before 30 days, you’ll get charged an additional $150 for the handset.
