Google is innovating itself with new ideas for serving its users and thereby expanding themselves. Recently they have come up with Project Fi, which combines both WiFi and cellular data. The advantageous thing about this is that you can access internet and make calls whenever you are in WiFi connection and this continues to a cellular network the moment you leaves WiFi connectivity circle. I would like you to have a broad understanding on Project Fi from Google.
Actually What is Project Fi?
Project Fi is actually a mobile carrier providing you Google. It utilizes three major cellular networks and allows you to have mobile data services. Project Fi is actually a Prepaid service, which allows you to pay in advance before utilizing the benefits. The charge comes to be $20 per month for unlimited texting and talking. Another $10 for each Gigabyte of data that you use. Suppose if you over pay, then at the end of the month you may get a refund or you can pay less on the successive month.
Project Fi is functional with the help of specially made SIM card along with certain software alteration in your smartphone. This will allow you to part with carriers like T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Sprint. The software will help you to switch between the carriers. It will simply go for the strongest network available in the locality. Project Fi also allows you get into WiFi connectivity circles at those areas where WiFi is available through which you are allowed to make calls and send text messages. This is possible with special software called WiFi Assistant. This will automatically connect your smartphones to WiFi hotspots, thereby reducing the usage of your available data packs.
