Google’s multi-network cell service Project Fi will now offer users international data coverage in more countries across the globe. It previously allowed users to access the service in 135 countries and it how now added more to the list, taking the total up to 170. The good news is that there’s no change to the pricing structure, customers will just have to pay the $10 per GB that they already do with unlimited SMS usage being provided as well. Users will be able to make voice calls to the United States from supported countries for $0.20 per minute.

Some of the new countries that are supported now include Morocco, Nigeria, Oman, Tunisia, Jordan, Georgia, Laos, and more. The full list is available on the Project Fi website.

It’s also easier for users now to find out if they will have international data coverage with Fi for their next trip. Project Fi will let users now if they’re covered or not on their next trip based on their upcoming international flights from Gmail.

They will see a notification in the Project Fi app shortly before their trip to see their coverage options and costs. The app has these notifications turned on by default but users will have the option to turn them off.

Project Fi users don’t have to do anything to activate international coverage. It’s part of their plan so they just need to pick up their phone and go.
