  • Pros: 

    Reliable, predictable, works well overseas, good support.

    Cons: 

    Not great if you’re a data hog.

    Even better now that they‘ve opened up the service to any unlocked phone.

Is data always that expensive in the US? $10 per GB up to 6GB (so $60 + $20 for calls and texts) up to 15GB where it slows. I pay €20 in Ireland for 20GB data per month with some calls/texts that I don't use.

@sammcallister Yes it is. You only get a decent deal here if you have 3 or 4 phones on the same plan. Plans for individuals are always expensive.

Been thinking of using this for my iPhone... still not sure it's worth it unless I was constantly travelling.

@bentossell If you travel a few times a year it can still work out in your favor. Fi supports pausing your account for up to 3 months at a time (or longer if you call/chat them).

Google Fi has saved me thousands of dollars on international roaming + data + calls while traveling around the word. ➡️LTE - I've been able to get fast LTE speeds all over the world from Sofia to Singapore to San Francisco. ➡️Free Data Sims - Fi offers addition data sim cards at no extra cost (perfect for hotspots, iPads or laptops w/sim slot). I keep 2-3 of these on hand and they are great to share with friends that are traveling with me. ➡️Now works with iPhones - this is a big deal ✅Save $20 when you signup w/my link https://g.co/fi/r/MMD8JF

Is Google able to mine my data going through this service?

@petr_sulc @jonathant They seem to have covered this here. I'm at work so can't pour through it all atm but if you guys spot anything fishy in there, do let me know with a reply. I have some friends who run an online security blog who love to hear about this kinda stuff. https://fi.google.com/about/priv...

Shocked to see that Verizon was cheaper than Google
