Google Fi is a telecommunications service from Google that offers voice calls, SMS, and broadband services in the united states. It is a mobile virtual network operator(MVNO) which means it does not own the infrastructure but relies on existing infrastructure by other service providers to provide its services. Google Fi uses T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Sprint network infrastructure to offer its services. This saves a lot of initial investment for a new entrant while efficiently utilizing existing ones.
APN settings are normally installed automatically when you insert a SIM card but sometimes you will need to configure them manually. These settings for Google Fi are listed below for both Android and iOS devices. Once you have these settings configured appropriately on your device, ensure that you are within coverage and have a Google Fi phone plan then restart your gadget to connect to a 3G, 4G or 5G network.
