    Hey Chris. I am a long time reader of your blog and love the level of detail that you put into each post. I too am a Project Fi user [about 4 months now] and personally, I think it’s great. You get pretty decent coverage in various areas and they credit your account for unused data. They also have a data only SIM plan for cellular enabled devices [Apple/Android tablets] and you only pay for what you use. You can also make calls automatically over wireless. this comes in handy when you are in an area with no signal [like our data center or basement area].
    I think that Google is, again, changing the landscape for the traditional carrier….and they will have to either adapt or perish. Note, your call drop issue at home may be because your device is negotiating between two networks [cellular vs home wireless] to make calls. My phone, from time to time, makes a couple of bings when I pick up a call because it’s trying to negotiate between home and the LTE network in my area [hasn’t dropped the call yet though].

    Don’t forget that you can now get up to 8 I believe data only sims for devices like tablets. I grabbed a couple, 1 for my iPad pro and the other for my cradlepoint router. This way I don’t have to worry about carrying some smaller plan that rarely gets used and I can save more money! In fact with my iPad Pro I keep it on the free tmobile 250Mb until that runs out, then swap sims if I need more.
