Google is certainly letting its wireless aspirations be known as it ramps up device accessibility and compatibility for Project Fi: its wireless service that is delivered utilizing two of the cellular giants Sprint and T-Mobile, and local Wi-Fi networks. The latest roll out of its data-only SIM card enables Project Fi subscribers to connect their data-only devices to the service for a flat rate of $10 per gigabyte each month, with a credit at month’s end for any data not used.
In addition, there is no charge to add the devices to the plan, contrary to competitor plans at Verizon and AT&T. One of the features of Project Fi is its automatic search and connectivity for free, quality Wi-Fi. This translates to customers automatically experiencing data cost savings when they are out at coffee shops or around other hotspots. Google is continually experimenting to deliver a seamless shift from cellular data to Wi-Fi between networks, providing both convenience and savings.
There are of course specifics to the program which are explained by the company online. It appears that Google aims to drive the paradigm shift in mobile delivery with its unique partnerships with cellular companies and Wi-Fi providers for cell phone service. During Project Fi’s Early Access Program, there are three smartphones that will support its network of networks: the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6.
