Google Fi is ditching US Cellular, leaving T-Mobile as the last network
Google Fi, the technology company’s mobile virtual network operator, once based its service on three different carrier networks so that subscribers could switch between them in search of the best signal. While that number dropped to two after the merger of T-Mobile and Sprint, it’s now down to one after Google dropped US Cellular as its official network.
According to a Reddit post, Google Fi support told users that US Cellular was going away last week. Google Fi users will still be able to access US Cellular’s network, but only while roaming, and those users will still not be charged, a Google spokesperson told 9to5Google.
However, US cellular availability will be useful in areas not covered by T-Mobile’s network.
Neither US Cellular nor Google immediately responded to requests for comment.
