Meet Project Fi - Google's first attempt at expanding its range of services to offer a fast and easy wireless network experience for your smartphone.
Nexus devices have always been called "Google phones", but it wasn't until today that this name gained a real meaning. If you own a Nexus 6, you can request an invite and try Project Fi as soon as it becomes available.
There's a lot to gain. Judging by the looks of it, Project Fi is a wireless counterpart of Google's Fiber program. It was designed with speed and flexibility in mind, allowing you to build a phone plan that will suit your needs and budget.
Fi Basic costs $20 per month. It includes unlimited talk and text in the US, unlimited international texts , low-cost international calls , native Wi-Fi tethering , and coverage in 120+ countries.
Should you want to surf the web, you can buy an additional data plan for just $10 per GB. Don't worry if you don't use it all up by the end of the month. Google doesn't want you to pay more than its necessary, which is why Project Fi comes with smart app that tracks your usage and returns money for spared data.
Here's Google's official release video for Fi:
To try Project Fi you must live in the US and own a Nexus 6 smartphone. Other regions and devices are not supported yet, but we expect the list to grow as the program expands.
