It’s increasingly common for tech companies to dabble in the wireless carrier space—witness the recent launch of Facebook’s OpenCellular project, a baby step in its long march to “connect the world” and the near-constant speculation that Apple will spin up a network, despite Tim Cook’s denials. But for average consumers—and for travelers in particular—the only foray worth knowing about is Google’s Project Fi, which, as of today’s upgrade, might just now be the best way to stay connected while you’re traveling, full stop.
Project Fi launched last summer to surprisingly little fanfare—in part because it’s only been available to owners of Google’s own Nexus brand phones. It actually isn’t an independent network; it’s a “mobile virtual network operator,” meaning it leases bandwidth on primary networks run by Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. Its secret sauce is an ability to automatically (and invisibly) switch between networks, meaning you get stronger signal and wider range than you’d get on any individual carrier. Costs are reasonable—$10 per month base fee, plus $10 per Gb of data. You pay only for data used, and flexibility is paramount: There are no contracts, and you can cancel service any time.
Project Fi’s best feature, though, may be one just for travelers: It works abroad. In 135 countries. Without any additional costs or service agreements, or even buttons to click on websites. You just get on a plane with your Fi-enabled phone and when you land, the same network-skipping technology that shifts you from T-Mobile to Sprint at home now connects you to a network in your destination. And your phone, as a result, just works. And the costs are exactly what you’d pay at home.
Google isn’t the first company to offer this; T-Mobile’s had a similar arrangement for several years. Until today, both had similar downsides, too, which were data speeds restricted to 3G when abroad. Better than nothing—but considering modern travelers’ devotion to Instagram and Facebook photo streams, sure to be frustrating, and limiting usage in the real world to text messages and maybe—maybe—a visit to the occasional web page.
Now, though, Google has taken the brakes off. Project Fi will offer high-speed data access across its international partner networks—at no additional cost and, still, with no action required on the user’s part. That makes it about the simplest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to ensure you’re connected while traveling outside the country.
You’re still tethered to Google’s Nexus phones, at least for cell service; but there are two additional bits of good news that take some of that sting away. First, Google’s offering a steep (if temporary) discount on its flagship phone, the Nexus 6P: $150 off list price for the next week. That means you can get our favorite Android phone from last year’s impressive crop for a very reasonable $350. Even if you’re just using it as a portable hot spot for your beloved iPhone, those are some compelling economics for frequent travelers.
Second, Project Fi recently added support for data-only SIMs. If you’re a Fi subscriber, you can get a free SIM to put in a secondary phone or tablet. Data costs roll up across your devices (you can have up to nine per account) at the same $10/Gb rate, and the data-only SIMs work in all the locations Project Fi’s cell SIMs do—meaning they offer the same 135-country-wide service at the same high speeds. Best of all, they’re not restricted to Nexus phones. Project Fi claims they’ve been tested and proven to work with LTE-provisioned devices like the Nexus 7, the Nexus 9, the Galaxy Tab S, the iPad Air 2, the iPad Mini 4, and the iPad Pro. They also invite you to try the SIM with other devices; they just don’t guarantee it’ll work.
