Some Project Fi customers have received a little surprise in the mail

Right now, Project Fi users are limited to using the Nexus 6, Nexus 6P or the Nexus 5X with the service. While in reach of a Wi-Fi Hotspot, users make/take calls and connect to the web using Wi-Fi. Once out of Wi-Fi range, the user's handset will determine whether to switch to a T-Mobile or Sprint pipeline depending on which one is offering a faster connection at the moment.
Some subscribers to Project Fi have just received a holiday present in the mail. The gift features a Lego set made of blocks with the Project Fi colors (blue, yellow, green and white), that can be turned into a phone stand. The other gift in the package is a a USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable. A card that comes with the gifts read, "Thanks for your support. Let's build on this."
It isn't clear whether all subscribers have received the package, or it was just meant to be received by certain Project Fi customers. With the Type-C cable, Project Fi customers will be able to transfer data at faster speeds, and charge up depleted batteries quicker. It is also reversable, making it easier to insert into the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, both of which come with the Type-C port.
How about better pricing, better service, and not a bs invitation system?

It's called an "early access program", if it's something that you were really interested in then you would have requested an invite a long time ago. Also, Google offered invites to anyone who wanted one for a full 24 hours, so you have no excuse for missing out on it. Also, you said you were on Verizon before and you're complaining about pricing? If I ditch Verizon for Fi then I'll cut my bill by 60%+.

Cheaper? You know how expensive wireless service is here in Canada? $50 a month for a 200MB plan with Rogers with the best service. The Alternative is Wind with unlimited data with full speed up to 2GB for $35 with s**tty service.

I just got mine yesterday (Saturday) and I have a Nexus 6, purchased directly from Motorla, that I use on Project Fi. Very cool about refunding you for unused data. On months with zero data used, it's $20 + taxes/fees, which for myself is less than $25. It's on a phone that used to be our physical house line that Google Voice will not let us transfer it (due to area code restrictions, even after I ported it to a cell phone). The wife and I are currently debating whether or not to keep the number. If Tmoble/Sprint had better coverage in our area I might switch from my primary Verizon account. Very nice surprise considering it wasn't too long ago that they sent the free USB charger, etc in the mail.
