Google Fi Offers an Unlimited Plan Now

Google has launched an Unlimited plan for Google Fi that also provides 100 GB of cloud storage and other benefits.

“Since Fi’s launch in 2015, we’ve had one plan, the Fi Flexible plan, that gives you the flexibility to pay for just the data you use,” Google’s Dhwani Shah announced.  “As we’ve grown, we’ve heard that many of you want the simplicity and predictability that comes with paying the same price each month. So today, for the first time ever, Fi is adding a second plan: our Google Fi Unlimited plan.”

The Google Fi Unlimited plan costs $70 per month for one line—there are options for up to 6 lines as well—and unlimited data, calls, and texts, including the same great international support as before. There are additional perks, too, including 100 GB of cloud storage, “expert support across Google, discounts on Google products, and more.”

But there is an asterisk on the data: Google will reduce your speed after you’ve hit 22 GB in any given month, and it may “optimize” video streaming down to 480p. Google says this will impact less than one percent of its current userbase.

Based on Fi’s pricing scheme, the Unlimited plan will only make sense if you consistently use over 4 GB of data every month: Google charges $10 per 1 GB plus $20 for calls and texts.

Google is also offering a one-day half-off sale on Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL when you purchase and activate on Google Fi. Or while its supply of phones lasts.
