Does Google Fi use Verizon towers? As an MVNO, Google Fi utilizes either one of the major mobile carriers in the U.S. – AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon. That said, customers have more flexible choices in terms of mobile networks or data plans.
Is Google Fi better than T-Mobile? If you need more than a few gigs each month, Google Fi’s unlimited plan offers better value, although you’ll have to give up HD video streaming. Still, with a 22GB throttle, heavy data users will be more at home with T-Mobile. And if you’re looking for more than one line, T-Mobile is a better deal.
Does Google Fi throttle hotspot? As noted on the MVNO’s updated plans page, Google Fi says it will start throttling your data after you exceed either limit. And if you want to use your phone or laptop as a mobile hotspot, Google is adding 5GB for hotspot tethering to its Simply Unlimited plan, a feature previously only available with Unlimited Plus.
Is Google Fi Deprioritized? Google Fi not only give you the best connection but you also don’t get deprioritized or throttled like other cheap plans.
