Starting today, Google's Project Fi will offer its subscribers international data access at speeds that are at least 10-20x faster than before.
The improvement is possible because Google added the cellular carrier Three to the lineup of international carriers. The company also removed the speed cap that previously limited the service overseas.
"Users will get the fastest connection available on a given network, speeds aren't capped. In some cases, that would be LTE networks, in others it would be 3G networks (depending on roaming agreements). Different countries will have different speeds, which is why we set a range," a Google spokesperson said.
Project Fi has always worked internationally in 135 countries, with data costing the same as it does in the US ($10 per GB). However, previously it was very slow - providing 2G speeds.
