Project Fi Invites Stretch to 12 Weeks (or More) for Some Listen to this article

Project Fi Invites Stretch to 12 Weeks (or More) for Some

Project Fi is Google’s latest mobile phone experiment. Instead of building  a network of cellular towers Google is reselling  existing T-Mobile and Sprint service bundled as Project Fi. Presently this is invitation only and the Fi site promises you’ll hear from Google within 30 days. What it doesn’t promise is that you’ll get service within 30 days.

For regular companies a wait time of 12 weeks may be normal (see Apple iPhone). However with Google it’s never certain that their entire offering will survive for 12 weeks before they lose interest and discontinue the service.

Looks like I’ll find out in 12+ weeks whether Fi is worth the wait.
