Google Debuts A Holiday Game, Project Fi Quiz & Free Gifts

Web giant Google has created a special Project Fi-themed browser game to ring in the holiday season, as well as a quiz for prospective customers to see if their use case would be a good match for Fi, and even a free gift for current and new subscribers. Anybody can enjoy the game by referring to the link below and once it's completed, Project Fi subscribers can sign in to obtain a promo code for one flight's worth of free Gogo Wi-Fi, which has to be redeemed no later than March 31st, 2018. The quiz, meanwhile, asks about where you live, how many people are on your current data plan, how much they're all using, how much you're all paying, and what phones you're all using in order to determine if Fi would be a suitable replacement for your current provider.

The game itself is a downhill skiing game. Your character will go flying down the mountain, controlled by taps, arrow keys, or your mouse, depending on your device. You can hit speed boosters and jumps to increase your score, which also steadily ticks up as you ride down the mountain. There are bumps to slow you down, along with piles of wood and trees to stop your mad descent in a fairly unpleasant way. Running into the wayward yeti wandering the mountain is probably not a good way to end a run, either. No matter how your run ends, the yeti will be waiting on the game over screen, hoping to welcome you to Project Fi.

The game and quiz are meant to draw in new subscribers by showing them how Project Fi works, though new signups are welcome to sign in and claim the free in-flight Wi-Fi once their signup process is done. Project Fi is unique in a few ways. For starters, the big caveat is that you can't bring your own device yet, unless it's either certain members of the Pixel and Nexus families, or the Moto X4 Android One edition. Beyond that, it's pretty simple; you have both Sprint and T-Mobile's coverage to fall back on, and data costs only $10 per GB. You can earmark how much you plan on using to pay upfront, then simply pay for what you used, or get a credit for the difference if your usage is less than what you paid for.
