Google Fi price cuts bring its basic plan down to $20 a month


Sarah Tew/CNET

Google said Friday that its Google Fi mobile plans will get price cuts and minor upgrades across the board.

Google Fi’s two monthly plans have gotten cheaper, according to a Google blog post. The basic Simply Unlimited plan has gone from $60 per month for one line to $50, or for the plan with four or more lines, from $30 per line to $20. The high-speed data cap has been increased from 22GB to 35GB, which now includes up to 5GB for mobile Wi-Fi hotspot tethering. Calls, texts and data to contact Canada and Mexico are now also free.

The top-tier Unlimited Plus plan has also become slightly cheaper. Plans for a single line went from $70 per month to $65, while the plan for four or more lines went from $45 per line to $40. The broadband data cap has been increased from 22GB to 50GB and, like the cheaper plan, it now also includes unlimited calls, texts and data to Canada and Mexico.

Pay-as-you-go flex plan pricing hasn’t changed, costing $17 per month per line for four lines and $10 per GB of data used, but users at this tier will be able to make unlimited calls to Canada and Mexico. .

Google has slowly expanded its Google Fi service since it launched in 2015, and added its cheaper Simply Unlimited plan a year ago. The tech giant’s wireless service, which relies on the T-Mobile and US Cellular networks, has become an affordable alternative to big carriers, especially since all of its plans support 5G (as long as the device is compatible with T-Mobile’s 5G network).
