A new news for the Mobile world. Google’s Project Fi mobile service will be driven by a significant expansion of compatible smartphones.
Fi will add support for Samsung, OnePlus and iphones. This means that more phones from the existing FI partners LG and Motorola will also get fi support. The IPhone experience is apparently “in beta”, which is a sign that users can have errors or run out of some of the features of Fi.
Project Fi is the MVNO backed by Google that combines the network coverage of T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular.
The service is attractive for its simple price: Unlimited calls and text messages cost $20 per month, and mobile data cost $10 per gigabyte until it reaches 6 GB. (After that, it’s free, but customers experience slower speeds if they cross 15 GB).
The line of phones compatible with “Fi-ready”, those that Google says have been completely optimized for the network, is quite short: Google currently sells the Pixel 3, 3 XL, 2 XL, LG G7, LG V35, Moto G6, and Moto X4 (Android One Edition) directly through Your Project Fi website.
