Google threw its hat into the wireless services ring last week when it launched Project Fi in the US.

It’s an ultra-low cost wireless service with some pretty interesting features.

The basic package starts at $20 a month for talk, text, Wi-Fi tethering and international coverage in 120+ countries, plus $10 a month for each Gigabyte of data you use.

It’s a pay as you go plan, so you don’t have to commit to any specific data plan and any unused data under your threshold gets credited to your next bill.

Google partnered with T-Mobile and Sprint to make this happen and included technology to figure out the best connection wherever you are.

It’ll automatically switch between Wi-Fi and LTE when you’re on a call and stay connected to the closest network that offers the fastest speeds.

At the moment, the only phone that’ll work on their network is the Nexus 6 and it’s invitation only, but it’ll expand.
