Google Fi has reported a fundamental, more affordable unlimited plan called Simply Unlimited addition to its present unlimited offering, presently called Unlimited Plus.
The new plan costs $60 each month for a single line and forgoes a several of features accessible on the more expensive plan: international data and mobile tethering. It’s the second time the MVNO has presented new unlimited plan, each marking a step toward a more conventional wireless plan pricing structure.
Just Unlimited covers the normal rudiments of a unlimited cellular plan: unlimited data, calls, and texting in the US. While the newly dubbed Unlimited Plus (still $70 each month for one line) gives high-speed data and texting in over 200 countries for international travelers, Simply Unlimited just remembers data and text in Canada and Mexico.
The new doesn’t include hotspot tethering either, whereas Unlimited Plus includes high-speed tethering (subject to the arrangement’s 22GB overall limit on high-speed data).
Offering a less expensive plan without tethering tracks with other essential limitless plans from the big wireless carriers; they tend to include slower tethering or none by any means.
Fi seems to be taking one more step toward conventional wireless offerings as an alternative to the unorthodox Flexible plan it launched with six years ago — and which is still available today.
