On Monday, tech giant Google announced that its Project Fi carrier service is now open to anyone in the US interested in signing up for it. However, to sign up for the Project Fi service, customers should have a compatible handset.
The opening of the Project Fi service – which piggybacks off networks from US wireless carriers T-Mobile and Sprint – to all interested customers in the US comes 10 months after the service was launched by Google as an invite-only network.
In announcing that interested US customers can now sign up for the service without an invite, Google also said that it has reduced the cost of the Nexus 5X handset to just $199 for customers who purchase and activate the handset through Project Fi. The standard retail cost of Nexus 5X handset starts at $349.
About the advantages of the Project Fi service, Google has been claiming that the service is comparatively much easier to use than other services, and is also much simpler to understand. Google has also highlighted the fact that Project Fi customers have the “data on data’ benefits, and can also avail 24/7 customer support from a real human customer-service representative.
The Project Fi plans begin at $30 per month, offering customers unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data at the mentioned cost. For every additional 1GB of data, an extra $10 is charged. Moreover, unused data is credited back to customers in dollars and cents, thereby implying that customers only pay for the data they use.
