Former Google Fi customer. Pricey as all get out. In Google's case you really don't get what you pay for. You are paying premium prices for a meh service. If you travel overseas a great deal they probably are a good service, domestically very so-so.
Other than at $10/GB for data, my biggest problem was I live in a metro area with many strong signal for multiple carriers. I would drop calls even in my house as my Google Fi (Moto G7) kept jumping carriers seeking the strongest signal.
Customer service was terrible, seems they don't care all that much. Given the current market conditions Google needs to revamp their entire structure from rates to customer service. I would save my time and money. At 1/2 price their rates are on the high end of being competitive, at the end of three months those rates become uncompetitive in the US market. Add in their blah customer service and I would quickly move on. Google should stay out of the wireless business.

I really wanted to like Google Fi - but downstairs in my house it would go to T-Mobile, and upstairs to ATT. If a text is sent between the switch of carriers - you never receive that text.

I started forcing the carrier to T-Mobile but that's a bandaid as they keep switching you back.

Quote from Veazer :
Google Fi's unlimited plans aren't that competitive unless you need the multi-network and international capabilities, especially if you use gobs of data. I'm on a T-Mobile MVNO unlimited plan for $40 that caps data at 32GB. Google Fi's unlimited plan is $80+taxes for usage between 6GB and 15GB per month. To go beyond 15GB on Fi, at full speeds, you need to start paying $10/GB again. That means to use the same 32BG on Fi you'd be paying $250 + taxes.
which MVNO do you prefer? I've thought about switching to tmobile because it's all that works at my house, but sprint is way faster at my job.

I wouldn't recommend Google Fi to anybody, I had them for a year and could not wait to get rid if them, they are just an overpriced cheap cell phone provider with the Google name on it. They would not even support calls over WIFI on my phone when other cheap cell phone providers do. And knowing Google, they probably sell your data.

Quote from TP8825 :
Be careful with Fi.
Customer/Tech support cannot help with billing. Sign-up is easy, but getting out is not. No way to dispute charge and/or to remove credit card.
Be warned ! I cancelled the service & returned the phone under RMA since the phone was defective. Google did not issue refund for the phone, and continued to charge for service. After numerous chatting with support without success, I had to get help with CC company.
Google support is just a joke in general I used to have to call them up evert 1~2 weeks for a different issue for like 6 months straight.
They basically all have low level non existent access. They are more or less just passing you from lvl 1 to lvl 1 support. Asking to talk to a manager or get your call escalated isnt possible. The can fix an issue 1 week, it show back up again and the ENTIRE PROCESS STARTS OVER.

This! I used it when I was traveling for a couple months, but it just doesn't compete price wise. Visible is $25/month "unlimited" and offers a pretty similar service (except the roaming.)

Honestly, I don't think it was even that great of a deal for roaming, it's just convenient. But if you have an esim phone (like any iPhone from the last three years) you can add a local plan really cheap.

Not that anyone should be traveling now anyway. Perhaps that's why they're cutting the price now, their international roaming fees probably dropped to a small fraction of what it used to be.

I'm using Google FI. I overall like the service. I had already been using the 100 GB storage, so I get it free now.
Phone wise, no different than any other service I used. I can tell you though, Fi does not work in certain areas. Airports specifically.

I mainly got it because Verizon decided to start charging for hotspotting. As a developer, I need access to a hotspot, and didnt want to pay a premium for it.

Don't do it. Had them for years but whir customer support has gone down the tube. There are better MVNOs.

What other MVNO's include US Cellular Service?

This is the only reason to have Fi. If you need that US Cellular service for a fair price.

Are there any data-only MVNO for use with portable hotspots?

Preferably ones that might be Verizon or Tmo based.

Former Fi user here (twice....had to switch back when I couldn't get service in my home from TMobile). Really an awful experience.

As others have mentioned, the support is abysmal. There are limited phones which work on the plan, so I purchased one of the phones directly from Google. It died within several months. Their warranty requires you to purchase another of the same phone at FULL RETAIL PRICE, ship the old one back, and then credit you back the cost of the new phone. That process can take weeks. I was without a phone for days waiting for the new one.

Trying to get any kind of technical support from them is impossible. Aside from a pretty bad language barrier it was very much a read from the script kind of support. Anything that a phone reboot and an update can't fix is an automatic wipe the phone and reset to factory settings. If that doesn't work, send it in with no loaner. Also, they refuse to let you speak to a manager for whatever reason.

While using the service I lived in an area that was not within a reliable TMobile coverage region (as mentioned above). Instead of automatically switching to the other carrier I just usually had no service. Forcing the phone to ATT only causes the same problem when you stray into an area not covered well by ATT service.

After I ported my number to Verizon, Fi screwed up the port request. Calls to my VM were sent to my VM on my Fi Mailbox for months after I left....eventually I would just get the default TMobile unavailable VM message when people hit my VM on my Verizon phone. That was really rough trying to explain to people.

The billing disparities took months to resolve. I think it was all sorted out 3-4 months after I had left.

Would not recommend unless you're some kind of masochist.

Google Fi is awful. We were on it for a few months and had the worst service we've ever had, with constantly dropped calls, automatic text blocks with no notice, and data outages. Then when we tried to leave, oh my word, having to figure out how to cancel our account and move our services to another provider was ridiculously complicated and spanned several days. Our new phone company even had trouble on their end. Bottom line, Google Fi is much easier to get into than to get out of. Don't do it!
