    I think this is excellent news. I've had excellent coverage so far, but another cell network should make it better. Though I wonder if another mass SIM card change out will be required.

    If they ever add Verizon, I'm going back to Fi.

    I don't believe so. It sounds, so far, as if the changes just need to be made within Fi.

    Just to follow up, Google stated in their email, "You won't need a new SIM or to change any device settings to receive this update -- so long as you have the latest available version of Android OS and the latest Project Fi app, your device will be enabled within the next few weeks."

    That most likely will never happen.

    It is possible for google to stitch together a network that would rival Verizon. Contrary to popular belief Verizon didn't build most of it's rural service. Verizon bought up many regional carriers (like Alltell). The addition of us cellular provided a lot of coverage in the rural areas of the far north east (New hampshire, Vermont, Maine) The midwest and the North West.

    I can see Google adding one or two more regional carriers to really make project fi solid. Now if Google actually went after international carriers instead of relying on t-mobile's roaming agreements, Google could make one number worldwide wit no extra fees a possibility.

    I signed up with project fi last week for this very reason. US cellular rules at my house. Patiently waiting for them to light it up. ๐Ÿ‘

    I was in northern NH on Sunday, and I was roaming on US Cellular but only on 1x, which I assume is part of Sprint's existing roaming agreement. Data wasn't usable, although I was on top of a mountain so that's likely why. Looking forward to getting US Cellular LTE!

    Yeah, northern NH might as well be Siberia. Lucky you even had 1x.

    Just downloaded the Fi App update. Now we need FiSwitcher update so we can pick and choose and know what signal we're using

    You might try Signal Spy, it has already been updated.

    I have both but Signal Spy doesn't seem to switch to USCC. Maybe Fi hasn't actually thrown the switch on it yet. Anyone actually picked up a USCC connection yet?

    I was emailing the developer for FiSwitcher and he said he would release the updated version when Fi released their update. That was two days ago but so far nothing new on FiSwitcher.

    From what I've seen on the various PFi forums, it looks as if the app does not yet auto switch to USCC. It appears some have used the dialer code to switch, though PFi engineers have stated not to do that, that using the dialer code first could cause issues with auto switching later.
