August 2016 – Project Fi Bill

Project Fi

For August 2016, my Project Fi bill came out to be $40.59. That includes:

  • Unlimited calls and texts for $20
  • 2GB of data for $20
  • Taxes and fees for $3.21
  • Additional 0.262GB of data – $2.62

No data usage this month on the iPad, so this was all cell phone data this month. So far so good, no real changes as far as Project Fi goes. However, since you have to use a Nexus phone, my phone recently received the Android 7.0 Nougat update.

August 2016 – Republic Wireless Bill

The August payment to Republic Wireless for my wife’s phone was $19.45. That includes unlimited calling and texting, 512 MB of data, and a $0.37 credit for the data she didn’t use the month before. This is the highest bill we’ve had so far without buying more data, but still managed to get a credit back.

 

The new phones and plans are now available on republicwireless.com. In addition, they’ve opened up the Bring Your Own Phone program. If you’ve got one of the phones on their BYOP page, you can test Republic Wireless without buying a new phone.

If you’ve used Republic or have any questions, let me know in the comments.

July 2016 – Project Fi Bill

Project Fi

For July 2016, my Project Fi bill came out to be $42.02. That includes:

  • Unlimited calls and texts for $20
  • 2GB of data for $20
  • Taxes and fees for $3.20
  • Additional 0.118GB of data – $1.18

We used somewhere around 189MB ($1.89) of data on the iPad this month. We recently took a trip West and I was able to use the use the US Cellular network that was added to Project Fi. It only popped up a couple of times and worked okay, but most of the time the phone connected to Sprint or T-Mobile. I was able to get coverage almost everywhere using one of the three networks. There were still some places where coverage was limited. I’m convinced that Sprint’s 3G coverage is worthless since it is so slow and is less usable that T-Mobile’s 2G or Edge service most of the time.
