Google Fi, formerly Project Fi is a MVNO telecommunications service by Google that provides a mobile virtual network operator service providing calls, texts, and internet using cellular networks and Wi-Fi. Google Fi automatically switches from carrier to carrier depending on signal strength and speed. This means that you will be on the T-Mobile network while at home and on the Sprint network while at job. The switching happens seamlessly. If the switching happens while you are on a call, you won’t even know it switched.
It can automatically connect to Wi-Fi hotspots. Google Fi must be activated within the US. After activation, Fi service may be used outside the US.

Google Fi Plans
Google Fi is a phone plan designed with the modern Google technology. Monthly plans are flat fee–based, paid at the start of every monthly billing cycle. It starts at $20 per month for unlimited calls and messaging.
With a Google Fi plan, you will get improved network coverage. In the US, it offers data service on three mobile networks (T-Mobile, Sprint and U.S. Cellular).Google Fi is compatible with certain phones and devices, primarily the Google Pixel and Motorola Nexus lines of phones.
Google Fi’s got you covered with feature-packed plans that adapt to your life. You don’t have to sign any long-term contract and you can cancel any time.
Google Fi now offers an ‘Unlimited’ Plan for its users for a flat rate of $70 per month with up to 22GB of high-speed data. After 22 GB, speeds are throttled to 256kbps. On both plans, users can pay a further $10 per 1 GB until their next billing cycle.
If you chose the Flexible plan, you get unlimited calls and texts for $20/month, and data at $10/GB (and you only pay for what you use).
You can add up to 5 additional people at your Google Fi plan. And the more people you add the less per line you pay. This can be very cost-effective for a large family.
