Project Fi was announced in April 2015, and it offers a few twists on the way wireless carriers traditionally work. For one, it employs multiple different cell networks — Project Fi phones switch between T-Mobile, Sprint, U.S. Cellular, and Wi-Fi networks depending on which connection is strongest at any given moment.
Now the question stands: Are you covered by Google’s Project Fi network? Where you can check Project Fi’s network coverage?
To see if you’re covered by Google’s Project Fi, just visit fi.google.com/coverage and enter your location (state, city, ZIP) on the map — and no matter where you search, you can always zoom and scroll around to see what the surrounding area is like as well.
Like other carriers you’ll get a color-coded map that shows you the darkest green for full LTE coverage, or lighter areas for 3G and 2G. The map is pretty good about pointing out specific areas around a state or city that may come up short on coverage, and while the actual real-world experience can never be perfectly mapped this is a great place to start.
If you already have a Fi-compatible device, you can use it with Project Fi. When you sign up, you’ll have the option to get a free SIM card shipped to you.
