Google introduces Project Fi wireless service




Google has introduced a new wireless service called Project Fi which aims to provide its subscribers the best network connection at their location whether its WiFi or 4G LTE.

Project Fi is basically a service that gives you access to a bundle of wireless connection using the Project Fi SIM card. As mentioned earlier it aims to connect you to the highest-quality of connection available in your area.

If you’re in a location where there is a healthy 4G LTE connection, Project Fi will automatically connect you on that network. If 4G LTE is not available it will then automatically move you on a better network type like 3G or 2G or to more than a million free, open WiFi hotspots that Google has verified as fast and reliable. Do note though that this isn’t an independent mobile network or ISP as Project Fi uses Sprint and T-Mobile network for its services.

Like any other mobile internet service, Project Fi offers plans for its subscribers but with no annual contracts. Plans starts at $20 per month for the Fi Basics and includes the following:

* Unlimited domestic talk and text
* Unlimited international texts
* Low-cost international calls
* WiFi tethering
* Coverage in 120+ countries

Then on top of that is $10 per GB for cellular data giving you a minimum of $30 per month for 1GB up to $120 per month for 10GB. If you have unused data it will be applied as a credit towards you next month’s bill so you only pay for what you use. In addition, you won’t be charged if you’re connected to an open or home WiFi.

Project Fi is currently only available on the Nexus 6 as its has the technology to fully support the project’s services. And, like Google Fiber, is only available in the US.

    Sana i-launch narin ng Google yung Google Fiber at yang Project Fi dito kaso mejo matagal pa ata kasi sa pagkakaalam ko hindi pa nalalagyan ang buong USA ng Google Fiber tapos itong Project Fi kakasimula palang (T_T). Para sana madurog tong mga greedy, low quality, overcharging, who cares about consumer, non-reliable, at speak but do nothing na mga Telecom dito sa Pilipinas.

    Ang Project Fi ay isang mobile virtual network. Parang abscbn mobile na sumasakay lang sa Globe network, itong Fi ay sumasakay lang din sa ilang gsm networks sa US. Kaya naman meron silang (theoretical) na nationwide coverage sa US. They can also expand fast into other countries by entering an agreement with existing gsm networks.

    Mahal ang plans nila actually.
