Reason For Extending Data Limit Temporarily
Coronavirus outbreak has forced people to practice social distancing and stay at home. As a result, people have increased their internet data usage at home. They use it to video call, chat, office related work and so on.
Therefore, Google decided to extend its data limit to 30 GB. However, it is temporary. Moreover, it will finish as soon as social distancing comes to an end. According to Google Fi, people need to stay in touch with each other during such a critical scenario.
Therefore, the company implements flexible data plans for them. As a result, the customer stays happy and the customer base increases. Also, Google Zoom is facing criticism for trespassing data privacy, therefore this initiative by Google Fi will again help the company regain its public image.
Users having a Flexible or Unlimited Plan can increase their data at no additional cost. Furthermore, Flexible Plan offers 15 GB data and now you can double it to 30 Gb high-speed data.
Also, Google Fi has released their payment periods for over usage of data plan. As a result, people facing financial setbacks can still have Google Fi’s access and pay the bills later. Users will get an additional 60 days of data plan services to post their bill payment date.
