Google has announced a new wireless service called Project Fi, which will provide cell and internet coverage for a monthly fee.

The tech giant posted about Project Fi today on its official blog, revealing that it has partnered with T-Mobile and Sprint to launch a service that provides unlimited calling and texting, as well as Wi-Fi tethering and international coverage.

Those services cost a base $20 per month, to which you can add one of several data cap options. The data rate is a flat $10 per GB--$10 for 1 GB, $20 for 2 GB, etc. Even better, you'll only be charged for data you use: if you don't reach your cap, the bill next month will refund the difference.

The cell service portion of Project Fi currently only works with Google's flagship Nexus 6 phone, which you'll need to have already or purchase in full from the company. There are no contracts involved (surely a relief to many), and the Wi-Fi functionality is much more robust. If you're connected to a network, almost any phone, tablet, or computer can make calls and texts because your number is stored in the cloud.

Project Fi will switch between cell service and Wi-Fi automatically, even if you're in the middle of a call as you step away from a network. Much of the U.S. is covered, and Google has provided a service to show where that coverage extends to--check here to see if your area is included.
