Today marks the first birthday of Project Fi, Google’s MVNO solution supported by T-Mobile and Sprint. A year ago today the company announced the carrier solution that at the time was only supported by the then new Nexus 6. Since then, the service has grown to support the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X and has added a data-only service for certain tablets.
When Project Fi started, it was invite only and was very limited
in the number of users that Google would allow on the service. Since then, Google has expanded it to a wide range of users and it is now completely invite free. Users can also purchase the Nexus 5X and 6P through the service, add Google Care to protect them and pay them out on a month-to-month plan that is interest free.
Over the course of the past year, Google has also added a data only service for select tablets including some Apple iPad devices as well as the Nexus 9 Android tablet.
I have been a Project Fi subscriber for six months now and as I put in my six month review, I cannot see ever returning to a traditional carrier. The cost savings have been huge for me and the quality of service and support have been great. If you have a Nexus device and are considering a change in your mobile provider, Project Fi could be your answer.
