Google allows Project Fi subscribers to add tablets to their plan

Google has said in an announcement made via a blog post released on Tuesday that the subscribers of its Project Fi wireless service will now be able to add cellular-enabled tablets to their plan.

According to the announcement, Project Fi subscribers will not have to pay any additional fee to bring on their cellular-enabled tablets to Google’s experimental wireless service. All that the Project Fi subscribers will require to add tablets to their plan is a SIM card or the small plastic piece which enables their device to connect to cellular networks.

The announcement by Google implies that the data-only SIM card for Project Fi will initially work on only five cellular-enabled tablets --- Google’s own Nexus 7 and Nexus 9; Apple’s iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4; and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S.

The addition of tablet support to Google’s Project Fi wireless service underscores the expansion of the service to data-only devices, over and above the existing phone service. For users who want a broader coverage for their tablets, the Project Fi service is a much cheaper alternative than traditional cellular wireless plans.

About Project Fi service’s expansion to tablets, Laura Holmes -- senior product manager for Project Fi -- said in the blog post: “We’ll continue to experiment with creative ways to make accessing wireless from your connected device as easy as connecting with your phone.”
