Some of you might not know this, but Google Fi is a telecom provider working side by side with traditional mobile communication providers. The service was made available publicly in the last couple of years on many unlocked phones which supported Google’s initiative.
Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL offer
Google has been working on for years for a network which will provide internet and telecommunication service throughout the world. Google Fi now works across 170 countries and users can make use of data or send texts without incurring any additional charges. If you reside in the US, Google also offers the ability to make unlimited voice calls for free. The base monthly charges for voice and texts are set at $20 per month.
In case you plan to get your hands on the Pixel devices, the company is offering a $300 discount on Google Pixel 3 & 3 XL if you activate Google Fi within a 30 day period of your shipment confirmation email. If you forgot to activate Fi within the stipulated timeframe, the discounted amount will be deducted from your Google account.
So, in short, just pay $20 using the Fi network or buy the Fi enabled Pixel device at just $499. It is a pretty sweet deal since Google works in partnership with three major US mobile carriers. Unlike other carriers which tie you to a particular network, you can take advantage of both coverage and speed in a particular area.
Fi works by switching to the fastest network possible in the area you are in. It works intelligently by switching between the mobile network and between 2 million + Wi-fi Hotspots. While Google charges $10/GB for the first 6GB, data is free thereafter at a reduced speed, thanks to Billing Protection.
Google’s unique project enables it to work across three major US carriers, namely T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular.
You can get the best of both worlds. Wherever a Wi-Fi hotspot is available, Fi automatically switches to Wifi to save on battery and get a boost in the internet speed.
This is really a sweet deal since you get Google Fi along with an enormous $300 discount. Be sure to buy one before the stocks dry up!
