What is Google Fi?

Google Fi is centered on streamlined billing. You pay $20 every month for unlimited talk and messaging, and a level pace of $10 per gigabyte of data utilized after that. In any event, until you hit 6GB ($60) of use for the month. Then you hit a level called "Bill Protection" — viably a boundless arrangement level for Fi.

When you've utilized 6GB of data in a month, your data charge is topped at $60 for the remainder of the month, yet you keep on getting data service. You can use as much data as you need for the month without paying over $80 total ($20 base + $60 data).

The main caution here is that once you hit 15GB of total data utilization, your rates are eased back to 256kbps — on the other hand, at the 15GB point you can begin paying $10 per G.B. again for full-speed data if necessary. 

The immense advantage here is that you don't need to pay for an "unlimited" plan each month — it's essential if you use past 6GB of data.
