Google is also in the business of providing cellular service. The Project Fi network hops between T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular to keep users connected. It’s a great option for those who want basic cell service and don’t require a ton of mobile data. Project Fi has been out for a while now and Google has decided to make it more cheap and easy to use. It has introduced a […]
As it stands, Google’s Project Fi’s plans are pretty much a one-size-fits-all. Given that Google’s time as an MVNO is still relatively short compared to other carriers out there, we guess it makes sense that Google would want to tread carefully out of the gate. However it looks like Google could be planning on expanding Project Fi’s offerings.
Low-cost carrier Cricket Wireless has come out with a new data plan that’s aimed at customers who want a bit more mobile data without having to spend a small fortune every month on their phone bill. The new plan is going to provide customers with unlimited talk and text as well as 1GB of 4G LTE data. Once the 1GB limit is hit, customers can continue to use mobile data […]
Google’s Wi-Fi Assistant is a feature that was previously exclusive to users of its Project Fi cell service. The feature lets a Nexus device automatically connect to countless open and free Wi-Fi hotspots in a bid to reduce cellular data use and provide better mobile data speeds. Google today confirmed that it’s expanding Wi-Fi Assistant to all Nexus smartphones and that the feature is no longer a Project Fi exclusive.
Google wasn’t always in the business of offering wireless service, but it entered into this space with Project Fi, its virtual mobile network. There have been rumors that perhaps Apple would do something like this as well, but the company hasn’t really given any hints that might suggest it’s interested in launching a virtual mobile carrier. A new report claims Apple CEO Tim Cook has declared it unlikely for the […]
You no longer need an invite to sign up for Google’s phone service. The company launched Project Fi about ten months ago and up till now entry was by invite only, even though it wasn’t that hard to score an invite. Nevertheless, the decision to go invite-free reflects Google’s confidence in this service as it opens up Project Fi to whosoever wishes to join.
Google’s very own mobile network, Project Fi, was announced in April earlier this year, and here we are with some updates on it. A Project Fi support page for tablets and “other compatible devices” has already gone live earlier today, where far more details concerning it has been shared.

Google got into the MVNO game with Project Fi but it has been tightly controlling the number of people who can access the service. It requires people to request an invite and wait for one to arrive, but for today only Project Fi invites are being rolled out for anyone and everyone in the United States. Google is doing this to celebrate the official release of LG Nexus 5X, one […]

The good news is that if you’re thinking about getting the recently announced Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P and are looking to go all Google, you’re in luck.It has been confirmed that in addition to the Nexus 6, both of […]
It was rumored earlier this year that Google is going to launch its own mobile virtual network operator or MVNO and eventually it did, however it’s not open to all devices.

It’s the new Moto X Pure Edition, an unlocked unit will work perfectly on […]
Google entered into the wireless business with Project Fi, that’s what it calls its MVNO or mobile virtual network operator that only provides service to Nexus 6 in the United States. Aside from getting all the advantages that Project Fi has to offer the company is also offering these customers a one-time Nexus 6 replacement for just $100, provided that the previous device suffered accidental damage.

The company is said to be considering launching such a service in the U.S. but is also believed to be in talks with telecom companies in Europe for launching the service across the pond as well.

Now Google had stated that they planned to start off slowly and at the time of launch, they stated that only the Nexus 6 was the only phone that was supported.Apparently this is because of the hardware used that allows […]
Last month Google officially announced Project Fi. For those who missed the news, basically Project Fi is Google’s attempt at being their own carrier, although to be fair they will be relying on T-Mobile and Sprint’s networks for coverage. That being said customers who were interested then could request for an invite, but at the number of invites Google has since received, it is not surprising that there are some […]
