Connect automatically to Google Fi Wi-Fi hotspots

As part of a new trial to expand coverage, Google Fi has partnered with select high-quality Wi-Fi hotspot providers. For no additional cost, eligible users on the Unlimited plan are automatically connected to the partnered Wi-Fi hotspots. In your network settings, these hotspots appear as "Google Fi Wi-Fi."

Through our partner networks, eligible users on the Unlimited plan get expanded coverage in addition to the open Wi-Fi hotspots you can already connect to automatically, even where your cell signal is low. As we continue to add more partner networks, you're able to connect to Google Fi Wi-Fi hotspots in more locations.
