Project Fi modifies its plans to include unlimited data

Microsoft’s 15-inch Surface Book 2 opens for preorders in 17 new markets including the U.K. and Canada

To better compete with carriers like T-Mobile and Sprint and their low priced unlimited offers, the new Bill Protection plan again supplies unlimited talk and text for $20 a month. Here's how much it costs.

For individuals, the way it works is that users pay the same $10 per gigabyte rate for the first 6GB of data used, prorated to the nearest cent. Fi has now introduced its own version of an unlimited plan, called 'Bill Protection'. Use less data than planned, though, and Google continues to issue a credit on the monthly bill for any unused data. That's ideal if you commonly go over what you set out to use in your data plan.

You can avoid getting throttled by opting out of Bill Protection and paying the standard 10GB a month for each gigbyte you use, but that only seems necessary if you're a heavy data user month-in and month-out. After the 6GB threshold, users will not be charged for any further full-speed data usage - be it downloads, uploads or hotspot usage - the rest of the billing cycle if they choose so. This essentially caps your bill at $80 each month, helping you keep your monthly phone bill under control even if you're a relatively heavy data user.

Just about every major wireless carrier now offers an unlimited plan. Instead, users are only charged for the data they use.

CARICOM condemns derogatory remarks made by US President Donald Trump
On Sunday, Mr Trump told reporters he was "the least racist person you have ever interviewed", adding: "I'm not a racist". Durbin said that Trump did use "hate-filled, vile and racist" language in the meeting, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Google's ambitious Project Fi cell phone service offers a unique alternative for users who have grown exhausted of hefty cell phone bills and data throttling typically associated with other major mobile carriers. However, all of these plans have a catch, where data speeds are extremely limited after a certain amount of usage.

There are some clear benefits to the Project Fi take on an "unlimited" plan. After you've reached the limit, you Google will drop you to 256Kbps speeds, which is enough for basic tasks, but you won't be streaming Netflix, that's for sure.

Better yet, Bill Protection applies to all worldwide countries where Fi operates, which now includes over 135.
