Project Fi, Google's Wireless Service, Has Landed

It’s official: Google is in the wireless business. On Wednesday, the company launched Project Fi, a wireless service that lets subscribers jog between the networks of T-Mobile, Sprint and Wi-Fi connections. It’s priced at $20 a month, with one gigabyte of data at $10 a pop; unused data will carry over to the next month. At the onset, the service is very limited: It only works with Nexus 6 phones.

Still, the initiative, among several Google is pushing to remove impediments to speedy Internet access, will agitate the wireless industry.
