Project Fi Adds US Cellular to Gain More Coverage and Speed | Droid Life
Project Fi added a third network today in US Cellular. That means Project Fi users now have access to three different networks, further enabling the ability of Fi to get you on the best connection at all times. For those not familiar with US Cellular, just know that it’s one of the larger mobile networks …
Google’s Project Fi cellular service is actually an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) that piggybacks on existing networks to bring service to your cell. Now they’re working with US Cellular to bring you more coverage and speed.
US Cellular is the fifth largest mobile network in the country and is available in 23 states, so their addition to Project Fi’s coverage could be a substantial improvement for some users. Project Fi already works on the backbones of T-Mobile and Sprint and adding US Cellular as a third carrier should help fill some coverage gaps.
