Google has already made some of the world’s most popular smartphones, self-driving cars and online maps. Now, you can add one more service the company provides: cell phone carrier.
Google actually started the service, named Project Fi, in Summer 2015, but you had to have an invite to join. Now, Project Fi is open to everyone.
Google is doing things a bit differently than other carriers. It gets signal by piggybacking off the networks of T-Mobile and Sprint, as well as using public Wi-Fi for calls and downloads.
