Google’s Renowned Project Fi Wireless Service Is Finally Coming to iPhone

For international roaming Google Fi users are charged at the same price as at home

It's easy to cancel Fi should you grow exhausted of it, you only pay for the data you use, and the service's automatic network switching feature allows you to get the best coverage no matter where you are. If you're a new subscriber and bring your current phone to Fi, you'll receive $200 off via billing credit.

Following Tuesday's speculation about Google's Wi-Fi first network, Project Fi is expanding its lineup of compatible phones and changing its name. If you want the full power of Fi's multi-carrier network, you will still need to buy one of the above "Fi-compatible" devices. Along with the name change, Google has announced that the wireless provider now supports "the majority of Android devices", including Samsung and OnePlus handsets, and iPhones (in beta).

With today's announcement, however, none of the aforementioned issues should crop up anymore. Unlike wireless plans from companies like Verizon and AT&T, Project Fi uses home Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hotspots across the country as one of its primary means of communication for both data and voice. The service, now dubbed Google Fi, will be available for certain Samsung and OnePlus phones, as well as iPhones - though the latter will be in beta for the time being. Non-Fi devices will get regular-old T-Mobile MVNO service, without Fi's carrier switching or the recently announced VPN encryption. You'll still get Fi's existing pay-as-you-go, contract-free pricing scheme, wide global coverage, and additional data-only SIMs at no extra charge. It all sounds exactly like Fi's existing "Data-only SIMs" for non-Fi devices, just with calls and texts added. But you'll also be getting coverage that is inferior to what a true Fi device gets.

The midfielder's not started a single game since the new coach came in. The first half featured no goals but had one unbelievable blunder.

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.

To celebrate the rebranding, for today only (11/28), Google has a few Fi deals going on.

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