Google’s Project Fi was renamed to Google Fi back in November 2018. The name now suggested that the service that relies on networks provided by Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular, was a more mainstream offering. To further enhance the reach of Fi, the search giant expanded official support to all devices on T-Mobile and began selling Google Fi SIM cards on Best Buy last year. Now, as another step further, the firm is beginning to offer Fi SIM cards on Amazon (via 9to5Google).
The product listing on Amazon prices the SIM Card Kit at $9.99. While this is more than what Google charges when it is shipped form them, which is effective $0, the purchase includes a $10 credit on customers’ first bill. The disclaimer also states that the SIM must be activated in the U.S. While there is no mention of 5G in the product listing, it should probably be able to connect to T-Mobile’s 5G network on supported devices such as the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren and the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G.
Google Fi is a viable option for many since it also began offering unlimited plans last year. Unlimited plans brought with it free calls to 50 countries and territories, and unlimited texting and data in 200 countries. The unlimited plans can cost $70 per month for a single line. Other flexible plans and pay-as-you-go plans are also offered. With benefits such as the ability to connect to two networks, Google’s wireless network offering proves to be a good choice, especially for people that travel abroad.
