Google FI

Posted at — Nov 29, 2018

The project has been renamed from “project fi” to “google fi”. If you think that’s boring, it is. What is interesting is all the other stuff.I have a, grand-fathered, free G-Suite domain and I was able to enable the serviceMy unlocked Moto G5plus is supportedMy Wife’s iPhone is also supported although I might need to unlock itCombined pricing is cheaper than our ATT family plan, and by $50 a month if we use everythingI’m always conscience about whether my wifi is on or not. On the one hand giving my browser history to the cell carrier versus the local hotspot is always troubling. The idea of a 3rd party VPN is also a pain and sort of a FAIL in itself specially when they are not carrier level players.What have I learned:now I will not care if wifi is on or not.I will not care if my kids tether movies or gamesI will still have bandwidth leftover for workNow the next question:Is it time to buy the kids their own phone? I do not have an answer for that yet, however, even though they are 7 & 8 I am asking the question because we are talking about buying them Apple Touch┬ábut since they are so expensive why not a phone?
