If you’re looking to ditch your conventional wireless carrier in favor of one backed by the world’s largest search engine, you’re in luck. Google announced Project Fi back in April and the only way you could get in was with an invite. Now that the Google Nexus 5X is available for purchase (in Canada too), Google wants to celebrate by letting everyone in on its WiFi hybridized MVNO action. At least for less than the next 24 hours.

As a quick refresher, Project Fi is Google’s MVNO that operates on both the T-Mobile and the Sprint network in the United States. Your Nexus phone (previously it was only last year’s Motorola Nexus 6, but Project Fi will work with this year’s LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 5P too) will then hop between the two networks based on whichever one is giving you the best signal. What’s more, Project Fi also relies on Wi-Fi connectivity, using that for voice and data whenever possible too.

The basic Project Fi plan is $20 for voice and text. As far as data, it’s $10 per gigabyte (not including Wi-Fi, of course) and you pay for how much you actually need. Any unused portion gets credited back to your account.

To sign up for Google’s Project Fi, ask for an “instant invite” on the official page by jumping through the standard hoops. From what we can gather, the “instant” invite is only open until early tomorrow morning. After that, you’ll be tossed back into the regular invite queue and there’s no saying when they’ll let you into this exclusive club again.
