Connectivity is an obvious demand for people who expect to be fulfilled everywhere. Whether you are travelling on the subway, watching a movie, enjoying a long weekend with friends, shopping in an upmarket mall or attending a seminar, good connectivity is what you are always looking for. Despite having expensive devices and omnipresent internet connections, we often face common issues like getting call drops, disturbance while in them and slow download rates. Google acknowledges these issues and introduces Project-Fi, giving us a hope of reliable communications everywhere, emerging as a trustworthy provider.
What is the Google Project-Fi?
Similar to their Nexus Project, Google has introduced this novice and convenient method for wireless communication. Project-Fi claims to get support from leading carriers, hardware makers, and wireless users to bring in a fresh wave of wireless connections.
The key idea behind this project is to design this new solution across hardware infrastructure and software. In this project, Sprint and T-Mobile, two major mobile networks in the U.S. are providing their know-how, hardware infrastructure and services in launching Project-Fi. It also includes all the users in possession of highly advanced smartphones. The key areas are:
The first thing provided is a Wi-Fi hotspot or any 4G LTE network in the surroundings. This technology is intelligent enough to detect the fastest and reliable connection among all those available at the moment. It includes more than a million free, open Wi-Fi hotspots with very high speed and trustworthy secured with encryption.
Communication across networks and devices
The connectivity problems should simply vanish. Users moving across different areas will hardly perceive the transition as it’ll be smooth, they won’t miss even a single bit of the communication, leaving behind call drops and slow download rates.
Convenient Service Experience
Project-Fi makes it flexible and affordable for users to pay only for what they use. In the US and abroad (more than 120 countries), users have to shell out $USD20 a month for a basic plan with voice, text messages, Wi-Fi tethering, and international coverage. As data usage is usually unpredictable, users are refunded with the full value of unused data. For example, if someone uses 1,4GB out of a 3GB plan in a month, he will get around $USD16 back.
As the number of mobile users grows exponentially day by day, reliable and efficient connectivity must match the demand rate. Google is trying to offer, as usual, the best solution. Let’s hope for the success of this high-end project.
