After months of speculation, Google has finally announce the launch of its own wireless network service ‘Project Fi’. The service as of now is only available for Google’s Nexus 6 phone, but will expand to other products in days to come.
The pricing policy of the service is simple, $20 per month for voice, text, Wi-Fi tethering, plus $10 per gigabyte of data which can be used in the U.S. and abroad. But more importantly, customers will only pay for the data they use and will be credited with what’s left over.
Through new technology developed with partners, i.e. Sprint and T-mobile, Project Fi puts one on the best available network around your location between Wi-Fi and two 4G LTE networks. This means the user gets access to more cell towers and 4G LTE in more places.
And also, no matter what network you’re on — or if you’re connecting via Wi-Fi, Google will let you make calls, stream media, browse the Web and use apps. You can also make and place calls using your phone number on any of your devices, including a PC or a tablet.
Project Fi is only available in U.S for now, that too on a invite only basis as the project scale is intended to be kept low.
