Google’s Project Fi has updated its plans to make the service a better choice for heavy data users. The MVNO has launched a new feature called Bill Protection that will cap your $10 per GB data bill at $60 a month, while still allowing you to use as much data as you want, essentially creating its own version of an unlimited data plan.

Bill Protection gives you the peace of mind to use extra data when you need it. In months when you use more than 6 GB of data, we’ll cap your charges for calls & texts plus data at $80, and allow you to continue using high speed data for free—similar to an unlimited plan. Bill Protection kicks in at different usage points based on the number of people on your plan, and you can see how it would work for your group here.

If you’re a super heavy data user, you’ll experience slower data speeds in months when you’ve consumed more than 15 GB of data (less than 1% of current Fi users today). But as always, you’ll have the power to customize your plan, and you can opt out of slower speeds by paying $10/GB for your individual data usage above 15 GB.

Never pay for data you don’t use

And here’s the kicker: with Bill Protection you’ll never have to pay for unlimited data in months when you don’t actually need it. If you only use 1.4 GB of data, at the end of the month you’ll pay just $34 instead of $80. So no matter how much data you use, you can save money with Bill Protection every month.

Finally, Bill Protection still applies to all of the Project Fi goodies you love, including high speed data in 135+ countries, and data-only SIM cards to use in your laptop, tablet or car. If you’re traveling abroad, that means you can use all of the apps you need—there’s no need to stress about the extra data.

Bill Protection begins rolling out today to individual subscribers and group plans. If you’re a current Fi subscriber, you’ll see it appear on your next billing cycle. For those not yet signed up for Fi, we’re making it easier to try it out by offering up to $120 off some of our Fi-ready phones for a limited time.

not worth it if they are going to slow down heavy users

Well, only super-heavy users will be slowed down (those who use > 15GB/mo) and there's always the option to opt-out of throttled data using the non-bill protection plan

If i was able to Use my Z Force or Droid Turbo I would have Considered it as an Alternative Service. Not Going to invest in New Phones for a Service that uses Sprint. At least not for my Area its not Worth it.

I’ll stick with my flawless T-Mobile plan of 2 lines with unlimited everything for $100/mo.

iPhone 6S+ primary and LG Aristo for a work/dirt phone.

Ug, my wife and I had that plan and we ended up leaving it which ended up with us returning to TMobile a couple months later.

I can't even get their service where I live in northern New York. It seems like a good plan unless you watch lots ood Netflix and such.

I've often thought of trying the service. But without a BYOD option beyond the ones that they have noted to support, its a dead end.

my eyes must really be tired. I thought at first you said BYOB... but then you may need it when trying new services :)
