As I said before, Google Fi works on different networks + WiFi. Whenever Google detects a WiFi hotspot, it will connect you automatically to it even on the go. In a sense, Fi is designed to route you through WiFi whenever possible. Since you don't pay for WiFi usage (unlike T-Mobile where you also get charged for calls placed over WiFi), you're better off with Fi than you think. Do you have to watch a Netflix movie on your commute to work? Not really! Reading an email on the go, using Google Maps or looking up something online? That doesn't eat much into your data.
With a slight adjustment / change in your usage patterns, you'll be amazed how much data you can consume on your device without digging mutch into your cellular data. Fi helps you stay off cellular and more on WiFi.
Besides that, it is nice to know that I can use my phone abroad without the fear of a horrible high bill in the end of the month. Virtually, it costs you the same using your phone in Germany or other participating countries as it does cost you in your home country. No international roaming charges, no surprises.

Well in canada a 2GB plan is gonna run you close to 100 dollars I would take this anyday
Get real!, 09 Mar 2016What you guys seem to miss is the very fact that this Google Fi plans are far more competive i... moreFi is only worth it to people that doesn't use high amounts of data per month, which I guess is like 20% of the population on the US, as soon as it exceeds the 3GB it becomes extremely expensive, Wall Mart's Straight Talk gives you 5GB of LTE data @$48 month (with tax and everything). So if u use less than 3GB data a month sure is a good deal, but if u use more then is not worth it.
In Australia at least one provider (Boost mobile) offers on pre paid "11 Gig for 40 Dollars" including unlimited calls & text (national of course)
What you guys seem to miss is the very fact that this Google Fi plans are far more competive in the US than anything else. It doesn't matter if your local Singapure provider is cheaper than this because Google doesn't compete there.
Also, you're getting money for unused data credited back to you. How many of your providers do that?
Finally, Google Fi won't cost extra if you go abroad (= visiting another country). The costs stay the same even if you use data in, let's say Germany, Mexico or the UK. How many of your providers would not charge you extra when in a foreign country? :)
In Latvia (eastern europe) unlimited calls and sms = 9.95 euro and you can add unlimited 4G data for 9.99 euro. So ~20 euro for unlimited 4G data and unlimited calls + sms. Good luck google
In greece with wind f2g gives you with 10 euros prepaid card 1 gb for free and you keep the 8(after taxes) 8 euros to buy even 1 more gb with 5 euros,so 2 gb cost 7 euros in Greece
Well...Actually it's very expensive. In Italy with Wind Tlc I pay 19 euros for 12 Giga Traffic per month (well, actually 28 days) Google Fi costs 10$ per Giga which is very very expensive...I should pay 120 instead paying 19 which is what I am actually paying.
Anonymous, 08 Mar 2016In Dubai the monthly plans are way expensive than other countries: Prepaid Plan 2gb=$27 5... moreIf you think that's expensive, look at Canada. In the populated areas, (Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal) prices are about $80/month for 2gb...
In Dubai the monthly plans are way expensive than other countries:
In Dubai its 0.8$ per day for 2GB. Renewed every day. I understand in USA its so expensive because you can use same data plan over whole continent...
In my country with current exchange rates.
1GB - 2$
2GB - 2.8$
4GB - 4$
6GB - 6$
15GB - 12$
Unlimited Plan - 60$.
Prices are same for all types of connection, it doesn't matter you have 3.5G device or 4G.
And 4G is pretty fast, about 40-50 mb/s for both upload and download.
i have (truly) unlimited internet with 3 in the uk, and only pay 12 pounds per month (sim only) on a 24/m contract, now you are telling me that google is asking for 10 dollars for each 1GB?!
AnonD-482637, 08 Mar 2016wow so expesive, in indonesia, you will get 18GB for $10Please remember that our country's 2016 4G data connection speed here is still comparable to their 3G 2010 data connection speed (yes, not even comparable to their 3,5G).
Talk about 6 years difference of connection quality.
And yes, I'm in the same country as you.
That idea is not bad at all. But as a way of implementing in practice with skyrocketing costs, which involves the use of these wireless networks Wi-Fi is unacceptable. Google merely pursue profit in special way. Therefore success had provided.
Maybe a great giant of those dealing with Wi-Fi networks, or why not, more giants in this field, to take the idea and make it accessible to all users at normal prices.
Be just a monthly subscription, without having to pay the amount of data used. It is simple and banal. So all proceeds largest operators of WI-FI, in most parts of the world.
