The new Fi Fit Quiz tells you if Project Fi is, well, a fit

You’re not going to choose a wireless plan in the blink of an eye, but you can easily educate yourself on whether or not a particular carrier offers what you want. It’s possible one of the carriers you consider will be Project Fi. To help you know about its sole wireless plan, Google has created the Fi Fit Quiz.

All you have to do is go through a couple of questions and you’ll know if trying Project Fi would be worth your time.

First you’ll have to tell Google where you live and where you go often. Remember that Project Fi doesn’t work on its own network. Instead, the service utilizes three carriers’ networks. Every Project Fi customer switches between networks belonging to T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular to get the strongest connection possible. So, if you’re an existing customer with one of them and you’re happy with the service, Project Fi immediately becomes appealing as you can an additional two networks to use.

After scoping out the area, the Fi Fit Quiz asks you to compare your current wireless plan with a possible monthly bill from Project Fi.

Google’s wireless plan is a one-for-all design. Rather than choosing between plans, Project Fi makes you pay only for what you use. Talk and text are included $20, as is unlimited access to public WiFi networks. Any data you use on the network, though, is given at $10/GB; however, unused data is refunded.

The end of Google’s tour through Project Fi shows you compatible devices and offers the Pixel and Nexus 6P if you don’t have an existing phone to bring.

    I use Project Fi, switched from Sprint unlimited to save a little money since for past 2 years I was barely using 1GB per month in data because I was always on a WiFi connection either at work or home; and now with Xfinity WiFi hotspots for free with my cable/internet service I am currently averaging about just over half GB per month in data and monthly is anywhere from $25-$30 before the ridiculous taxes (same for all cell carriers) adding another $7 roughly. Very noticeable in my overall cellphone bills. Plus ability to cancel anytime is nice. Project Fi isn’t for everyone; like if you watch a lot of YouTube videos while on cell network and not WiFi. One tip when using Google Maps for navigation just download your area to offline maps I select pretty much the entire state and then put Google Maps in Offline and only WiFi mode saves the data a ton. If you use your phone for mainly texting or calls; and have free WiFi hotspot then this is definitely the way to go. Personally I think Google should increase the amount of data you get to $10 for first 2GB or include 500MB-1GB free; for all the Google apps that use the data.

    Oh and if you choose to sign up for Project Fi please use a referral code when signing up; you both get $10 credit to your service after the first month.

    If you don’t have a friend that has Project Fi to get a referral code you can always use mine :))) it’s: 7NY4MF

    Fi has saved me oooodles in the Bay area where WiFi sharing opportunities are everywhere. You DO have to be more thoughtful though… When I had sprint unlimited I just downloaded podcasts without thinking. Now I do so more at home or at a Hotspot… Saving 50 or 60 bucks /month is well worth in!

    I’m in northern Idaho now and hotspots are more limited… Still sadness me bucks but I really gotta be careful to shut data down when toodling around.

    If you need reliable service outside of major metro areas, find another service. In fact, if you aren’t really into being a Beta tester, find another service.

      I’m not exactly sure how you would qualify Fi ass beta product. MVNO providers aren’t exactly new…this one happens to be offered by Google. I’ve never once had an issue with the service nor support.
