Google Fi announces its first Unlimited Plan, here is what you get
Google Fi is getting its first Unlimited Plan, which should offer subscribers everything in unlimited quantities. Well, that's not how it really works in the United States, at least when it comes to data.

Since the carrier's launch in 2015, only one plan was available for customers, the Fi Flexible plan. Starting today, Fi is adding a second plan, a Google Fi Unlimited Plan. It will be available for $70 for a single line, but the more people you're sharing it with, the less it will cost. So, for two lines, the Unlimited Plan is priced at $60, while three lines cost just $50 per line. Finally, if you add between four and six lines, you'll be paying $45 per individual user (taxes excluded).

Google Fi's Unlimited Plan offers 22GB of unthrottled data per line, after which your data speed will be limited. Also, Google mentions that it “may optimize video streaming quality to 480p to extend customers access to high-speed data before they hit 22GB.”

Besides data, you'll get unlimited calls and texts, including international calls. Google says that the plan covers free international calls from the US to 50 countries and territories, as well as unlimited data and texting abroad in 200 destinations at no extra charge.

To make things even more appealing, the Unlimited Plan comes with a Google One membership with 100GB of cloud storage and extra benefits such as expert support across Google, discounts on Google products, and much more.

I just saw this offer in my email and got extremely excited, $45 for unlimited everything?! I'm in!... I did not realize that the price was exclusive to a 4 phone plan. $70 is still far too high. I pay about $25 a month for my current plan, excluding payment for my phone which has one last payment left.

Does Google Fi have an account fee type of deal where you have to pay $100 just to have access to the account.... THEN $40 per line after that? Or is it I pay $70 per month for my 1 line and that's it?

I pay $120 for 6 lines with T-Mobile magenta military. They need to at least match that.

Another fake unlimited...another unlimited, that has limits. I want to stream in FHD or 4K videos, need unlimited data, o sorry, Unlimited data means SD or lower vid streaming....negates the entire purpose of having Unlimited. Video IS the number one data hog. Why pay $70+ a month, to be limited to lower than SD video etc, when i can do that now, on non-unlimited, and pay a fraction per month $15, and still have plenty of data left for other things.

4K is enough for my 75" TV, Even 1080p looks good on my TV, so DVD quality is good enough for a device small enough to fit in my pocket. Besides, when I'm streaming video content, it's at home and on Wi-Fi. Even when the data is capped, streaming music or using maps work flawlessly, which is what I anticipate I would use if I had this plan.

Maybe I might consider it, $50 a line is still respectable for three lines and my wife and daughter might switch carriers if it saves us money compared to their current plan.

Seems good...but I can only hope that Google Fi will be coming in India. The service providers here are corrupt and data speed throttling is like favourite hobby for service providers here in India!

I have no clue what their plans are for future growth or for reaching out into other markets, but they have to get contracts from foreign service providers in order to offer texting and data while traveling so it's not a stretch to see this service expand using those same providers.

why would you do this? there are plenty of other cheaper plans from other carriers. 40 for unlimited should be top. Tmobile has it. and with this Fi you also get tmobile and Sprint but... meh. either one is 40 or less for unlimited. and it doesn't have to be the bran d, it could just be Metro, same thing. it could be boost, same as Sprint. i have cricket and it is the same as the Att i used ot have for a fraction. no taxes, just straight price. same every month
