The long awaited 5G Google Fi is now here for iPhone! Google heard from their iPhone users that 5G coverage and speed is important. Now, after you turn on 5G, you’ll be able to get an even faster connection in more places.
Please note that 5G coverage requires a 5G-capable device (iPhone 12 or later).

What is Google Fi’s Smarter coverage?
Phones designed for Fi automatically shift between multiple mobile networks and secure Wi-Fi connections to connect you to the best possible signal.
International coverage outside of the USA
Make calls to other countries at little to no additional cost, and get international texting from the US including free. All plans include data, calls, and texts within the US, Canada and Mexico. Plus, Flexible and Unlimited Plus also come with international data in 200+ destinations, and for supported Pixel and Samsung phones, 5G coverage is available in select countries and territories.
Why Google Fi?
Google Fi is one of the MOST affordable mobile solutions in the US. Since the pandemic, I’ve switched my family’s plan over to Google Fi. Together our total family monthly cost is LESS than what we used to pay for one phone, and one service plan.

Google Fi’s international coverage is great AND free for Unlimited Plus subscribers
I used to think this feature was too good to be true when I signed up in 2020. Unlimited Plus (at only $40/month) gives you free data and calls when you are abroad.
Even a trip to Canada used to cost us $10+/day per phone just for basic coverage with limited data. Google Fi offers international coverage for free as part of our family plan, making travel such a breathe.
