'Bill Protection' is Project Fi's new $80 unlimited data plan

Microsoft’s 15-inch Surface Book 2 opens for preorders in 17 new markets including the U.K. and Canada

Thus far, the pricing model has been fairly straightforward: $20 per month for unlimited calls and texts, plus $10 for every gigabyte (GB) of data used. It's very much like unlimited plans from other carriers, but you still get unlimited tethering and full-quality media streaming. Bill Protection should help alleviate those worries for most users.

Everything else with Project Fi's plan will stay the same. "If you're traveling overseas, that means you can use all of the apps you need-there's no need to stress about the extra data". They may use 6GB+ a couple months out of the year, but the rest of the time they're using less but still paying the same amount for an unlimited plan.

Google (googl) said it could slow the speed of a customers' downloads if they used more than 15 GB per line per month, unless they paid another $10 per GB over the $80 charge.

While Google's MVNO service is ideal for subscribers that only use a little bit of data every month, it's not particularly suited for heavy data users. That's cheaper than most of the plans available from the major carriers and doesn't lock customers into guessing how much data they may need and paying unnecessarily extra when they use less. At $10 for every gigabyte of use, a bill can quickly skyrocket.

Because no unlimited plan is ever unlimited, Google, too, will slow your data speeds once you hit 15 GB of data. Plans with two lines get protection at $120, three lines at $135, and four lines at $150.

If you were to use 8GB of data in one billing cycle under the old policy, you would pay a total of $100 ($20 base fee for unlimited calling and texting, plus $80 for data). It includes global data and applies to data-only plans for laptops and tablets as well. Customers don't have to do anything special to prevent getting charged for using more data, Google said. "If you're a current Fi subscriber, you'll see it appear on your next billing cycle".
