Google’s Project Fi International Data Service goes Down

Google’s Project Fi International Data Service goes Down

Subscribers to Google’s wireless carrier have reported that international data hasn’t been working in many places around the world, including Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, and Japan.

Some users have reported temporary success by switching into and out of airplane mode or rebooting their phones, but it hasn’t lasted for longer than 2 minutes.

This kind of downtime would be frustrating for anyone, but it’s particularly irksome for Project Fi subscribers. One of the perks of the service is its straightforward, affordable approach to data: you pay the same $10 per 1GB as you do in the US, so you’re not shelling out a small fortune just to share your winter vacation on Instagram. Outages on this scale appear to be few and far between, but that’s not much comfort if you’re traveling and have few options for getting online when you’re away from WiFi.
