Google’s Project Fi is now invite free


Last year Google launched its own cell phone service, Project Fi, in select areas and with select phones. Up until now, you had to be invited to try out the service. Getting an invite wasn’t that hard, to be honest. All you had to do was request one and, assuming it was available in your location, you would be accepted. However, now cell phone users that are curious to try the service can bypass that whole invite process and just sign up for the service straight away.

Project Fi utilizes the T-Mobile and Sprint signals to provide service to its customers, basically bouncing back and forth to ensure the strongest possible signal. Customers pay a base price of $20 for the service, which includes unlimited domestic calls and texts, Wi-Fi tethering, 3G coverage, and texts in more than 120 countries. Customers then can pay an additional $10 per one GB of data they want. The cool thing about Project Fi is that you get a refund for the amount of data you don’t use each month and can apply that to the next month’s bill.

The big catch here is that Project Fi is only available on the newer Nexus the devices. This includes the Nexus 6, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. To celebrate Project Fi being open to all, Google has knocked down the price of the Nexus 6P by a cool $150 making it now available for $200. This price will likely stick around for the next few months, but will only be available to those who activate their Nexus 6P through Project Fi.
