Years ago, I signed up for a service called Project Fi. I vaguely remember what it was about, but it’s been so long I can’t say for sure. OK, perhaps that is a bit of an exaggeration, but it does seem like the Project Fi invite process is taking a long time. I’m on record saying I’m not a fan of invites in anything tech related (looking at you OnePlus), but sometimes it is necessary to roll out in stages.
Google is now giving you the status of your Project Fi invite on the signup page if you have already requested an invite. I signed up incredibly early on the first day, but my status is still showing as, “We’re still determining your status. Check back here for updates.” It seems several other people are reporting an estimated 3-4 week wait, which I assume means I am looking at an even longer wait. Given that I already own a Nexus 6, this is a bit frustrating, but maybe Google is trying to sell some phones to people lusting over Project Fi! I was pretty excited about trying the service two months ago, but my excitement is gradually fading. I’ll probably still give it a shot when my invite arrives, but at this point I don’t think it will be substantially better than my current T-Mobile plan.
Has anyone else received their Fi invite lately? If you already signed up, you can check your status here. Let us know what time window you currently have!
