Furthermore, if FI service is paused for more than 7 days or the activation is canceled within 120 days the value of the gift card will be charged to the users Google Payment account. Carrier partnerships with both Sprint and T-Mobile allowed Project Fi subscribers to get the best network connectivity wherever they were, and a simple pricing model of $20 per month for baseline service and $10 for every gigabyte of data offered clarity about just what subscribers were getting for their money.

You can sign-up for Google Fi here. "Over the years, we've built upon that vision by bringing you features at no extra cost, like worldwide data coverage in 170 countries and territories, spam protection, and data-only SIMs for your other devices".

Google introduced Project Fi back in 2015. For BYOP customers, they can get $200 of credit towards Fi service.

Google's MVNO wireless option, Project Fi, has found itself in the news more than a few times recently, especially with rumors suggesting the name was going to change and Google was planning on adding support for additional devices outside of the ones it sells directly.

"Our plan now works with the majority of Android devices and iPhones", Fi director Simon Arscott said in a blog post. And effectively having access to 15GB of data for $60 is pretty handy if you're an global traveller. However, the biggest difference with Google Fi is that it employs three wireless networks - T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular in spite of just a single network.

You can buy phones that are "designed for Fi" right from the Google Fi website, including the Pixel 3 + 3 XL, Pixel 2 XL, Moto G6, LG V35, LG G7, and Moto X4 with Android One. Today only, if you sign up for new Google Fi service and buy a new phone, you will get gift cards that total up to the full cost of the phone. Then you'll need a phone that's officially created to support Fi.

Google is offering a couple of deals for today only.

Also note that not all plan features will be available to any Android or iOS phones you bring to the network.

Officially supporting iPhones is particularly significant for Fi in the U.S, where tinkerers have always been experimenting with ways to get around Google's device restrictions, says Google product manager Dhwani Shah.
