Totally forgot about this. Being a google service for some reason I expect it to be out of this world amazing in pricing and performance like Google Fiber, but this is not the case.

$20 + $10/GB is essentially in line with everyone else right? A few perks like getting refunds on unused data, but this isn't the end all of Cell Phone competition like Google Fiber would be if it were available everywhere.

No welcome kit any more. In addition, not all the phone number could be ported into Project Fi. Maybe Ringplus does the better job if you have decent Sprint coverage.

It supports the 6, 5x and 6p. The 6p 64gb/128gb are the only ones sold out.

Expected more from Google.

It makes very little sense to buy a new device at $380-$650 to save $5-$10 a month. They should have launched with Samsung and i-phone compatibility or trade-in. I would have tried it out then. Google you should know better.

You can save a lot more depending on your current bill + usage. e.g. TMobile 1GB plan is $50, Fi is $30. If you go with Cricket, you can save more since its $35 for 2.5GB.

the problem is that they don't provide the cell coverage in the first place. they have to pay sprint and tmobile for the coverage so they're just like any other mvno. the only advantage to this is that they use both sprint and tmobile towers, and have good international roaming.

compared to being on a decent family plan this is not a deal.

Unfortunately I am in an area with terrible T-Mobile service. I had to swap to verizon when I moved here. With Cricket which network does it use?

Still don't know who would do this. Cricket is going to be cheaper for almost everyone. Google should have really been more aggressive with their data rates. They're going to have to do better than MVNOs or prove that their service is somehow better. Then again, with Google's name attached it might be the first MVNO that the general public trusts.

Roughly same price as I pay now with severely less coverage. Disappointed in Project Fi.

Not worth it... T-Mobile has far better deals...

Cricket caps the 4GLTE speed at about 8Mbps. That's ok for most day to day use, but I believe there is no speed cap on this Project FI deal. It's all about compromises. Cricket's AT&T network is great, but the data speed of Project FI could be much better if you live in an area where you get their T-Mobile and Sprint network.
