Google Fi mobile service starts rolling out eSIM support for existing iOS subscribers

Abner Li, 9to5Google:

Similar to the experience offered on Pixel devices, existing Fi subscribers with iPhones can replace their physical nano-SIM card with a downloadable eSIM. This capability is tied to version 2.5 of the Google Fi companion app, which rolled out yesterday. The release notes mention how “You can now activate Fi via eSIM on select iPhone devices.”

I’ve been curious about Google Fi as an alternative to my current provider. To get a sense of Google Fi coverage in your neck of the woods, pop over to this coverage map and enter an address.

The pricing is not dirt cheap, but it is definitely cheaper than my existing service.

Having a knee-jerk privacy reaction, have to read up on that. Wonder if Apple will ever rollout their own MVNO service. I suspect if that was ever going to happen, it would have happened already.
