Google expecting to get all Project Fi invites out by mid-summer

Google has released a tool enabling those who wish to jump on board with its exciting Project Fi mobile network venture to check on their invite status, while also pledging to get all invites out by the middle of the summer.

The groundbreaking MVNO, which offers US residents customer-friendly pay-as-you-go data plans that roll over into the next billing cycle, was announced in late April.

The first invites for the service, which also offers introduces innovative network hopping between Sprint and T-Mobile, were sent out in early May, while thousands of eager folks are believed to be on Google’s waiting list.

Now the firm has launched an official portal where those who’ve requested an invite can gauge when they may be able to join in the fun. The sign up page also offers an estimated time to expect the invite (mine says 3-4 weeks) for the Nexus 6-centric platform.

This will give users time to sort out their existing contracts ahead of a switch to Project Fi, which offers unlimited texts and minutes for $20 a month, with a promise of cheap international calls and free roaming to boot.

In an email sent out on Friday, Google said: “We’re continuing to send invites as quickly as we can, while we ensure a high-quality experience. We still estimate that it will take until mid-summer to get everyone an invite.”

Naturally, Project Fi is a US-only venture at the moment, but we’ll keep you posted should Google look to extend the scheme internationally. However, that’s like to be some time away, if at all.
