Compare Google Project Fi Plan Pricing with Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, & T-Mobile

Comparison of major carrier base single line unlimited talk and text plans with varying data scenarios.

"For $20 a month, Google gives you unlimited domestic voice calling and texts, unlimited international texts, coverage in over 120 countries, and support for Wi-Fi tethering. It's all centered around a hybrid take on wireless coverage that's new to most consumers; Project Fi claims to seamlessly hand off between Wi-Fi and the mobile networks of T-Mobile and Sprint in the United States.

Google sells monthly data at a price of $10 per gigabyte: $10 for 1GB, $20 for 2GB, $30 for 3GB, $50 for 5GB, and so on. But the innovative part of Project Fi revolves around the data you don't end up using. If you fail to burn through all the data you've paid for in a month, Google will automatically "refund" you for the unused portion as a credit on your next bill. "For example, if your data budget is 3GB and you use 2.2GB, you'll get $8 (for 800MB of unused data) to use next month to lower your bill," Google says." Chris Welch @ The Verge
