What’s the deal with Google Project Fi?

You could earn up to $200 when you refer your friends to Google’s Project Fi! Google has indefinitely extended its $20 referral program with Project Fi, where both the subscriber and the referred customer each get $20 credit. You can refer up to ten friends with the promotion, which was due to end January 11th, 2017, but still works now. According to Google, the referral program will remain active until further notice.

Tell me a little more about Google Project Fi…

Project Fi is the cellular and WiFi network from Google, which uses cellular networks belonging to Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular. Project Fi uniquely puts you on the best available network between WiFi and these 3 4G LTE networks, meaning you get access to more cell towers and 4G LTE in more places.

There’s no annual service contract required when you sign up, but you can currently only use Fi on one of three Google phones – the Pixel, Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X.

When it comes to the monthly pricing, Fi Basics is a simple plan that costs $20 per month and includes:

  • Unlimited domestic talk and text
  • Unlimited international texts
  • WiFi tethering to use your phone as a hotspot
  • Access to cellular coverage in 135+ countries and destinations

You then need to add on your data allowance, which costs $10 per GB per month. If you estimate that you will need 2GB, you’ll pay $20 on top of the $20 Fi Basics, so totaling $40. However, the value of any unused data that month is applied as a credit toward your next month’s bill.

Here at Mighty Travels, we’ve reviewed international roaming with both T-Mobile and Skyroam before now. The T-Mobile Simple Choice Plan $20 data only offer, with 1GB of data on the LTE network in the US and unlimited international roaming, turned out to be a great tool when tested in Vancouver. We also tested Skyroam while traveling in Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, and found it to be an excellent device when there is no T-Mobile or other mobile network coverage, and much easier than the hassles of buying a SIM card.

Both T-Mobile and Skyroam, however, were slower than we’d hoped for, while Project Fi is said to have some awesome international networks, with unthrottled high-speed data in more than 135 different countries and territories.

How do I get the Google Project Fi deal?

Existing Fi users can easily share your unique invitation code:

  • Open your Project Fi app and select ‘Account’.
  • At the top you should see a banner to ‘refer a friend’.
  • Tap the ‘refer a friend’ button and select your preferred delivery method.

(If you don’t see the referral banner, tap the link at the bottom of your Project Fi app home screen to see your invitation code instead).

When your friend signs up for a new Project Fi account and has been active for 30 days, you’ll both then see a $20 credit applied to your next bill.

What else do I need to know about Google Project Fi?

Aside from the limited choice of phones that can use Project Fi, the biggest downside is the high price for data and the fact that there’s no data included in the $20 Fi Basics plan.
