Google's Project Fi service, a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) service using Wi-Fi and the cellular networks of T-Mobile, Sprint, U.S. Cellular, and Three.
The pricing model has been fairly straightforward until now, $20 per month for unlimited calls and texts, plus $10 for every gigabyte (GB) of data used.
Simple right? Well today Google's Project Fi announced a new feature called “bill protection” a feature that effectively brings unlimited data to Project Fi subscribers with a $60 cap in place.
Before bill protection users would pay $20 for 2GB, $45 for 4.5GB, $50 for 5GB, and so on. With bill protection in place, users will pay the usual $10 per GB until 6GB after which they pay nothing extra up to 15GB. If they do hit the 15GB mark they will then begin to experience slower data speeds until their next bill cycle begins unless they opt out of the program and choose to continue paying $10 for every GB they use over 15GB.
Google's Project Fi currently works with a handful of Android devices including the Moto X4, Android One Moto X4, Google Pixel and Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google Nexus 6P, and Google Nexus 5X. It’s only open to U.S. subscribers, though the plans work for U.S. travelers in more than 130 countries.
