    Another vote for Google Fi. A Pixel 3A with Google Fi is my only phone, and I used it seamlessly in 7 countries outside the U.S. last year. (Canada; Peru; Columbia; Iceland; Denmark; Sweden; and Turkey.)

    Bills have averaged about $45 to $65 a month, depending on how much I'm away from home -- far less than what I was paying Verizon for service in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico only.

    One caveat: I don't stream much video or music. If I did, the cost would be higher.

    A quick funny story: On a flight from Reykjavik to Copenhagen, I forgot to put the phone in airplane mode. From 38 thousand feet, it pinged to say: "Welcome to the Faroe Islands." So yes, it works there too.
