Ten months after launch, Google’s own carrier service, Project Fi, is finally ditching invites for everyone in the US. Of course, Fi still only works on newer Nexus devices. But if you’ve ever wanted to give the whole experience a try, now’s the time to indulge your curiosity.
Project Fi, Google’s carrier service, is a great idea currently stymied by a limited rollout. Only owners of Nexus 5X, 6, and 6P devices can test drive what it’s like to have Google as a carrier, for good or bad. Google’s now loosening that tight gadget grip a teeny bit and letting in data-only tablets free of charge,…
Back in April, Google announced Project Fi, its very own wireless network that requires no contract, has no termination fees, and even refunds unused data. Well, according to the official Project Fi Twitter, free instant invites are available for the next 24 hours to celebrate the shipment of the new Nexus 5X.
One month ago, we tried Google’s experimental cell phone service. It was a disaster. But I guess the second time’s a charm. After spending two weeks with Project Fi in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’m just about ready to ditch my old carrier.
I glimpsed the future before it collapsed into bullshit.
If you’re trying to sign up for Google’s Project Fi, you may be in for a wait. Google warns that demand has been so high that it may take until mid-summer for all of their requests to be processed.
Google is now a cellphone carrier with the launch of Project Fi, and it carries over a few features from Google Voice. However, once you sign up for Project Fi, you lose a few Voice features, too.
Today, Google announced its very own wireless network. Just $20 a month for unlimited call and texts, plus $10 per gigabyte of data. No contracts or termination fees. Google will even refund your unused megabytes. Sounds awesome. So what’s the catch already?
Google has a wireless service coming . We don’t know when, or who can get in on it, but thanks to a new leak we now know a lot more of the (possible) details. And some of these (potential) features sound (hopefully) pretty great.
