Project Fi, which is Google’s way of jumping in the middle of the great carrier race, has shared today that starting tomorrow, you can order a SIM for your data-only device. I’ve switched one of my phones over to Fi and I really haven’t had a problem with finding reception and the way they bill you is refreshing.
With this update, you can access cellular connection from tablets and other connected devices while on the go. Once you’ve ordered and received a data-only SIM, just pop it into a compatible device, follow the instructions, and voila: instant wireless connectivity. Just like with our phone plans, you’re charged a flat $10/GB for data and pay only for what you use. You can cancel at any time.
If you’re already a Project Fi customer, you can add another SIM for your iPad, Nexus 7 and Nexus 9, or other data-only tablet or device. If you’re not a customer yet, you have to sign up for an invite.
Of course, you’ll want to first confirm whether you’re in Fi’s coverage area.
Subscribers have been getting LEGO sets as a holiday gift, so it’s nice to see that Google is making the customer service for carriers space better. I cringe if I have to get on the line with AT&T.
