Project Fi Sending Credits to Customers Impacted by Irma

Well done Project Fi.  Well Done.

Google’s MVNO service has been notifying their customers that were impacted by Hurricane Irma this weekend that they will be receiving a $20 credit on their account to assure they can stay connected and not worry about overages for this trying month.

The actions by Fi follows on a similar action they took with victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas at the end of August.

Project Fi is known for their customer support and this is another example of it for customers who, right now, need to make their mobile bill the last thing they are worried about today.

Google and Googlers Donate $500K for Hurricane Harvey Relief

This weekend, Hurricane Harvey struck the state of Texas here in the US, leaving a path of complete destruction.  The death toll as of this morning sits at six but with another 24″ of rain expected in some areas, that is likely to rise.  Once the waters recede from the Texas coast, the billions of dollars in damage will be revealed and it is going to be very high.

The American Red Cross is already in the area helping victims of the storm and Google is helping their efforts.  Google.org, the charitable arm of Google, has grant donation of $250,000 to the American Red Cross and Google employees themselves have donated another $250,000.  This will help the ARC continue their work in the area, who will be active for a long time after Hurricane Harvey is no more.
