It was July 2016 and I was in the middle of simplifying my life and finances. Part of the simplification was with my cell phone plan, provider and services needed. I was tired of being in a long-term contract and paying for services that did not fit my need or use. Further, the telecommunications landscape was changing by the way you pay for or even lease your phone. This is my story on how I switched to Google Fi and have saved almost $2,000 in 3.5 years.
