Google Fi cuts plan prices and adds more high-speed data

Google Fi does its more affordable. In an email the sent to Engadget, it said the monthly cost of its Simply Unlimited and Unlimited Plus plans by up to $10 and $5, respectively, with the former starting at $50 per month for a line and the latter at $65 every 30 days.

In addition, both plans now come with additional high-speed data. With a Simply Unlimited plan, you can use up to 35GB of data, up from 22GB before Google starts throttling your connection. As an Unlimited Plus customer, the high-speed limit is now 50 GB. Simply Unlimited subscribers can also enjoy up to 5 GB per month for hotspot tethering. That’s a feature that was previously limited to the more expensive Plus plan.

Finally, all Fi customers, including those on MVNO’s flexible plan, can look forward to free calls within Canada and Mexico. Previously it was only possible to make calls Canada and Mexico – still in the US – free.

With the price drop and feature tweaks, Google’s Simply Unlimited plan compares well to other providers’ entry-level unlimited plans. For example T-Mobile starts at $60 per month for one line and includes 50GB of high-speed data and unlimited 3G data when you tether devices to your phone. However, when streaming video, you are limited to 480p.
