Google Fi has added a new wireless plan to its lineup. It's a $60/month "unlimited" plan called "Simply Unlimited." It's basically a stripped-down version of Google's more expensive "Unlimited Plus" plan that costs $70/month. The MVNO announced the plan today in a blog post.

The new Simply Unlimited plan comes with the same amount of high-speed data as the Unlimited Plus plan, 22GB, but removes a lot of the extras. It does not include international data, hotspot, Google One cloud storage, or even the option to use the plan with data-only devices. A chart detailing the differences between the two plans is below.

Taxes and fees cost extra. After 22GB of data gets consumed during a billing cycle, data speeds are reduced to 256Kbps for the remainder of the billing cycle. Additional high-speed data is available as an add-on priced at $10/GB. Video streaming is limited to a resolution of 480p. Data is provided over 4G LTE and 5G networks where available. Google Fi operates as an MVNO on T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular. Subscribers will automatically switch to whichever network is providing the best coverage at a given moment in time. WiFi hotspots are also used for supplemental coverage.

Promotional Offers Include $100 BYOD Credit

Google Fi was founded in 2015 and originally launched as "Project Fi." It's rather unique in the MVNO market as subscribers have access to multiple networks at once. To celebrate the new plan launch, Google Fi has also announced a new promotion. Customers that port-in and bring their own phones over to Fi will get $100 back in bill credits when they use the code SAVE100 at checkout and pay for their first month of service in full. The promotion ends on May 6, at 11:59 PM PST.

In addition to the BYOD promotion, Fi is also offering up to $400 off the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra. To qualify for the discount, customers must be new to Google Fi, port-in, activate a plan, and stay active for 120 consecutive days. For previous phone promotions, Fi required at least 90-days of consecutive service. So this change allows Google to keep customers on board for longer. Google Fi phones are sold unlocked and ready for use with other providers. Existing Fi customers are eligible for the same promotion, except they only get $300 off the phones. Google Fi offers quite a few other phones available with large discounts. You can view all the offerings here.
