That number has now increased quite a bit, with Google announcing that Project Fi now officially supports 170 countries.

The new additions are spread out across the globe, including Algeria, Georgia, Morocco, Myanmar, and Uganda.

Project Fi already tries to make global service a little less of a headache by charging you the same amount for data as it does domestically - $10 per gigabyte. Regardless you'll pay the typical $10/GB, regardless of where you are and SMS utilization is boundless, as well. The cost of voice calls varies based on the country.

T-Mobile, which offers unlimited global data for most of its post-paid plans, says it covers "140+ countries".

It's also easier for users now to find out if they will have worldwide data coverage with Fi for their next trip.

Planning for an global trip can be tough, especially when it comes to planning for phone coverage, but Google's efforts to not only support a variety of worldwide locations, but also let you know ahead of time if you're covered, should help quite a bit.
