Project Fi invites won't reach everyone until mid-summer, says Google
Invites for Google’s Project Fi carrier service began rolling out at the start of the month, but you’re not alone if you’re still waiting for yours to be processed. Google has revealed that some of those who registered will have to wait quite a while before being accepted into the program. Emails sent out suggest that some may have to wait until mid-summer before their request is processed.
In the email, Google explains that the delay is down to the large number of applications made to join the service, and that it is trying to get around to everyone as quickly as possible. To help ease customer concerns, Google says that it is also working on a way for users to track the status of their registration, which should appear within the next few weeks.
“We’re sending invites as quickly as we can, while ensuring a high-quality experience, … Given the number of requests we’ve received, we currently estimate that it will take until mid-summer to get to everyone.” – Google
In case you missed it, Project Fi is Google’s phone service that makes use of Sprint and T-Mobile LTE networks and Wi-Fi hotspots for its signal, but customers only pay for the data that they actually use. Consumers require a special SIM and are limited to use of the Google Nexus 6 smartphone for now, but other Android devices will be supported in the future.
