    As part of my New Nexus adventure I plan on giving Project Fi an evaluation.

    I'll keep my Note II on VZW for a couple of months and get Project Fi on my new 6P.

    I plan on testing coverage vs. VZW by taking both phones out and comparing coverage.

    My Area is a heavy VZW area and both T-Mobile and Sprint show much less coverage away from the busy Highway and City corridors.

    For those of you going with Project Fi, would you be willing to perform a similar test to help the community out?

    A simple test really, Go where you know your current carrier has coverage, especially fringe areas and then see if Fi works there as well.

    Go to places where you know your coverage is weak or non-existent, see if Fi works there.

    Maybe a 30 day test and then we report our discoveries ?

    I'm interested to see how it goes for you guys. I'd be all over it if they had proper service in my area.

    I'm curious to know as well. I'm out in the sticks running and a few places vzw doesn't have coverage.

    The new vzw has me at $130 a month before discount. If I can save $60 a month that adds up.

    I have a feeling that Fi will not be able to compete with verizon. Then again it would be nice to have a lower bill. I have a 6P on the way and a Fi invite so I will also give it a try.

    I've been using Project Fi for 2 months. Their data is faster than Verizon for the most part. But they don't have the coverage Verizon has. In my area Verizon is still all around better than Project Fi

    CJ, guess that kinda puts paid to the claim that fi roams on vzw... Bummer, that would have made it better than vzw.

    I thought for some reason it was only available in certain parts of the country. It's nationwide now?
