Google’s ‘Project Fi’ Opens $20 Unlimited Talk, Text to Everyone

The service's connectivity relies on a combination of T-Mobile and Sprint's networks, as well as available Wi-Fi for the strongest signal and fastest data.

(TNS) — If you’re in need of a new cellphone service, we might have a solution for you. Google is officially opening up its cellphone carrier service to anyone and everyone.

The service, called Project Fi, originally required an invite to sign up since Google launched the service 10 months ago, but the wait list is officially gone, says Business Insider.

The service is quite unique.

First, the service's connectivity relies on a combination of T-Mobile and Sprint's networks, as well as available Wi-Fi to give you the strongest signal and fastest data.

Second, the pricing is unlike any other service. Users pay $20 for unlimited talk and texting and $10 per gigabyte of data, but Google only charges users for the exact amount of data used. For example, if you pay $30 for 3GB and only use 1.4GB, you will receive $16 back.

The deals don’t stop there. Google is bringing in customers by taking $100 off the Nexus 5X, pricing it at $199 for the next month, says Business Insider.

Unfortunately, the service only works with Google Nexus 6X, 5X and 6 smartphones. Sorry iPhone lovers.
