    In my area I have great coverage between T-Mobile and Sprint. I personally couldn't be happier with the service.

    I use Fi on a 5X in the Cincinnati area, and I am largely satisfied. Observed opportunity: Fi seems to select the network based on the relative strength of the LTE connection. In my experience, data over LTE is adequately strong on any available network in my area, but voice service is distinguished. Tmo is fine but Sprint is weak. In particular, my phone falls to Sprint at my home, where the voice connection is very poor...hang up, airplane mode, call them back over WiFi poor. If my calls were executed VoLTE, this would be solved. If a widget enabled me to lock to Tmo, this could be solved. I use SignalSpy to temporarily designate Tmo, but it falls back to Sprint in time. All-in-all, I survive but less techie users would give up and switch service.

    I use Fi on a 6P in Vermont and have rarely had any problems. I also went from a $80 monthly Verizon bill (albeit for unlimited data) to a typically under $40 monthly Google bill for 2 gigs of data. I have wi-fi at work and home, so YMMV on that one.

    I use my Fi in Lubbock, TX. My only complaint is the noticeable delay to initiate a call over WiFi. Otherwise, very happy.

    I've been happy with it. Price is great and haven't had any issues with the service. On WiFi most of the time. I have noticed at times that my reception isn't as good as when I was on at&t, but I rarely make phone calls so I just don't care that much.

    Oh...because I purchased my 6P through Google at the time I enrolled in Fi, I also just got a free upgrade to a Pixel XL due to the 6P battery issue.

    Now I'm really happy! :)

    My brother in law lived in Boston, and now Newton, and he uses Fi, so it is available.

    Not in Beantown. Comcast has a lock.
    Damn Google!
    Call him man, he'll tell yah.
    Seriously Sucks in the city.

    Newton is a suburb; Well might have a mayor, it gets confusing around here for area identification.
    Never mention Greater Boston to a true Bostonian. It's a "TV show", not a neighborhood.

    Fi is Google's cellular provider. No carrier has exclusive rights to offer cell coverage anywhere. Are you confusing FiOS with Fi?

    No FIOS in Boston either.
    Newton maybe, but not Beantown.
