With Project Fi data-only SIM, select Google as well as Apple-based mobile devices will be able to connect to the fastest available network at your location, whether it's free open Wi-Fi hotspots that have been verified as fast and reliable, or one of the company's two partner LTE networks (Sprint and T-Mobile).
