Google's project Fi is the initiative taken by the Google with the aim to provide wireless service worldwide. Google's Project Fi is Google run network which gives the user the option to switch between Wi-Fi and Cellular network.
Last week Google annouced the Wi-Fi service in the US. The project Fi is the extension of the service to the public. The service will keep you connected to the internet even though you travel it will automatically search and connects you to the nearest and fastest network, such as a free and open Wi-Fi hotspot or a partner 4G LTE network. It also helps secure your data through encryption, so you can browse safely as you go about your day.
Google has partnered with Sprint and T-Mobile in the US for this Project Fi. As for now the service is only available to Nexus 6 smartphones users but believe the service to be launch for other models soon. This service works well the Project Fi SIM card. If you already purchased a Nexus 6 with a plan through a carrier, such as AT&T, you can still sign up for Project Fi and get a free Project Fi SIM card.
The main aim of the service is to keep the users connected to internet. So if you are going to a public place say a shopping mall where the free Wi-Fi service is available, the service will connect you to the network and when you leave the place your phone will automatically transition to a cell network.
Google is also aiming to include Cloud phone numbers to the service. The feature will allow you to save you mobile number to cloud and stay connected using another screen as it would allow you to talk and text with your number on any phone, tablet, or laptop.
Here is the plan for the service.
- $20 per month for the basics (talk, text, Wi-Fi tethering, and international coverage in 120+ countries)
- $10 per GB for cellular data while in the US and abroad (1GB is $10/month, 2GB is $20/month, etc)
