How Google Project Fi works essay. You are the CEO of Verizon Wireless (www.verizonwireless.com), and you are giving a presentation to the board of directors.
Begin by introducing how Google’s Project Fi works. Then, describe your strategy for competing with Project Fi.
With a Google Fi plan, you’ll get improved network coverage. Fi uses two carriers (T-Mobile – which has since bought Sprint – and US Cellular) and Wi-Fi hotspots if available to ensure you always have the most reliable connection wherever possible. You just need to use Fi with a smartphone that’s either “designed” for Fi or “compatible” with Fi. This can be an unlocked Android, Pixel, or even an iPhone.
Beyond cellular and data coverage, Google Fi is all about streamlined billing. You pay one fee per month for unlimited talk and texting, plus a flat rate per gigabyte of data after that. There’s also a level called “Bill Protection”, which effectively caps your charges every month and therefore serves an unlimited plan. You can also do international data and calling with Fi, and there’s no additional cost for data use or texting.
Remember, Google Fi is about streamlined billing. So there are no hidden fees. Since launch, Fi has updated its offering with a number of new plans, and how much you pay depends on how many lines you’re looking for.
To be clear, the plan only charges you for the data you use, and when you hit a certain amount of data, it’s free for the rest of the month. Also, when you travel internationally, data abroad costs the same as at home.
For a plan with unlimited data you pay $70 per month for a single user, up to a fair usage limit of 22GB. With that plan you also get Google One membership.
For those looking to add additional lines, the per person monthly price drops. For instance, for two users you pay $18 per person, or for three people you pay $17 per person each month. If you need five or six lines you pay just $16 per month per line.
