Google Unveils Its New Wireless Service, Fi
Google has just revealed its highly anticipated wireless service Project Fi which is meant to make the U.S. mobile services safer, easier, faster and cheap.
Google, which has cemented itself as an internet giant, described its project as an opportunity to be able to introduce to the mobile industry “new ideas” as well as “to push the boundaries of what’s possible.”
According to Google, it has partnered together with top mobile players in the US, that’s Sprint and T-Mobile. The two have agreed to carry Project Fi traffic’s.
Phones which are on the Fi service will be able to switch between two networks depending on the signal which is much stronger. Subscribers cellular bids are also expected to go down in an event that they use Wi-Fi networks to route calls.
While speaking about their much-anticipated project, the Fi, Google’s vice-president, Nick Fox, said that the “project Fi aims to put you on the best network wherever you go."
Another benefit which comes with the Fi project is that customers will be able to only pay for data which they have used each month.
According to Google, Fi comes with one plan at one price. Subscribers will be able to get basic talk, text, Wi-Fi tethering, as well as international coverage for a price tag of $20 a month. Its good to note that Google has indicated that it will refund its customers for any data which they have not yet used.
Subscribers also have the ability to talk and text from their phone number or any other phone, laptop or tablet.
