Google set to introduce Project Fi data services to iPads, Nexus and Galaxy tablets
Introduce Project Fi data services
Introduce Project Fi data services. Google phone service users can now rejoice as soon they will be able to purchase Data Only plans for their smartphones and tablets. The Project Fi- as been called is a pay-as-you-go service that allows the users to purchase SIM cards that are compatible to be used with devices iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 9 and Galaxy Tab S. Once you order and receive the SIM, you just need to pop it into compatible device, follow the directives and you will be connective wirelessly!
The Project Fi has been applauded and appreciated as a great idea but currently obstructed by limited rollout. Google is not loosening the tight grips letting in the data only tablets free of any charges.
The Project Fi – Flat rates for Global coverage
For the currently existing customers, the tablet devices will be sharing the same data budgets to that of the main phone. A regular customer can add up to 9 data only SIM cards and they can also use the same SIM cards on a multitude of devices. Unfortunately, the data only SIM users would not be able to tether from devices. As per the Google’s phone plans, a user will be charged $10/GB for data and will be refunded for any unused data units. The rates for unused data units will be one cent per unused MB which will be refunded to their accounts. Just like the data and service plans, there won’t be any additional cost or service contracts required if the users turn out to be a Project Fi customer already! Introduce Project Fi data services.
The project is also offering International coverage, covering more than 120 countries worldwide at same data costs. This will benefit and appeal those customers that are used to travel abroad regularly. However, the coverage map might be slightly different from the current voice and data services. The company spokesperson said with increased number and variety of devices in the market, there must be a rise in wireless connectivity options as well. Beyond the names of tablets mentioned above, Google also plans to eventually extend their support to those devices that are compatible with T-mobile network.
Google had first introduced Project Fi services in April as an alternative to voice and data services to those devices that are using T-Mobile cellular networks and Sprint. The service relies heavily on WiFi usage to cut down the network costs. The voice and data plan will start at $20 per month and includes domestic calls, texts, unlimited International texts and allows the device to be used as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Unlike their phone services, the data only SIM cards can be used by T Mobile’s cellular’s instead of pairing them with Sprint. Customers can request for an invitation to access the programs and the option will start appearing soon on their account pages.
