Let’s first dive into what Google Fi is:
Google Fi is one of Google’s projects that seeks to provide you with the best data and cellular services. It is a mobile network virtual operator (MVNO) that provides the best possible network coverage in the US. But it does not have its own infrastructure. It uses the services provided by other network operators and streamlines them for you. It is very smart in the sense that it will switch to the best network provider at the moment in order to provide you with the best network services. Not only that, if you are using a mobile phone that was particularly designed for using Fi services then it will also catch the Wi-Fi networks that are available at the moment and switch to the best one for you. It allows you to make calls, text messages and use internet service all at specially curated plans for you. There are three types of plans; Simply Unlimited, Unlimited Plus and Flexible. The unlimited plans allow you to access services endlessly and the flexible one allows you to pay for whatever amount of service you’ve used. Sounds good, right?
For the non-users, if you want to avail the benefits that Google Fi has to offer, then you need to download the Google Fi app> opt for eSim activation; the app will run compatibility tests> Go to fi.google.com/quick set up on some other device after establishing the compatibility of your device.
