Verizon Go Unlimited will soon include service in Mexico and Canada

Back in August, Verizon diced up its Unlimited plan and with that came multiple varieties of "unlimited," one of them being Verizon Go Unlimited.

Project Fi Bill Protection caps bills, throttles heavy data users

Google is rolling out an interesting new feature called Bill Protection to Project Fi subscribers today.
