    Google just announced a major update to Google Fi. You can now add up to 6 people to your plan, sans contract. The cool part about this is you can add anyone to your plan for $15/month plus the $10/GB data charges. You can add your mom, or your friend across the country by just sending a quick invite. It's the same deal as a single plan where you will be refunded for any unused data. The Manager of the account has full account access and can even set monthly allotments on a per user basis.

    I'm so confused about Project Fi.

    Say I'm on t-mobile. Am I paying my monthly t-mobile bill, and then an additional fee for Project Fi? What is the benefit?

    You won't be on T-Mobile, you'd be on project Fi. All payments would go to google. Your service would allow you to use T-Mobile, sprint or US Cellular towers. $20 for unlimited calling and texting then $10 per GB of data used. If you only use .8 GB you get $2 back next bill.

    Does this include t-mobile and sprint LTE data?

    Yes, why wouldn't it?

    Also works in 135+ could tires without overage charges, overseas fees, etc.

    I wasn't sure if t-mobile would keep their LTE locked down to their own subscribers.

    That would defeat the purpose of google partnering with them.
