Project Fi Review

Google started a cell network a while back called Project Fi. I have been using it for a few months. I am already saving a lot more money than I was with my Verizon plan. You don’t pay for the data you don’t use and they help you save data as well by automatically connecting to open Wi-Fi hotspots while securing the data link with encryption. You also get a $20 credit for anyone you refer. That is how I got my bill to $5.27 in the picture below.

As of 1/17/2018 They also started this new thing called Bill Protection. Ones you pay for up to 6GB of data the rest is free. So your basically getting unlimited data for $60.

The tech guy in me also thinks the network is neat. The phone automatically connects to the best networks in the area. They have teamed up with Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Three to do this. Based on the IP I seem to be on the Sprint network most of the time.

Maybe the best thing of all is the phone I got with Project Fi did not have any useless bloatware that you can’t uninstall all over it like my Verizon phones always had.

The one downside is the phone selection is not very big. Right now it is only Google phones like the Pixel and Nexus. They also added the Moto x4. I am guessing most phones don’t support the more than one network setup yet? But I love my Nexus 5X and without all the bloatware this is the first time I truly felt like the phone was mine!
