Google.

Google on its blog, said "As you go about your day, Project Fi automatically connects you to more than a million free, open wi-fi hotspots we've verified as fast and reliable.”

The post also stated ‘Once you're connected, we help secure your data through encryption. When you're not on wi-fi, we move you between whichever of our partner networks is delivering the fastest speed, so you get 4G LTE in more places.’

The mobile phone service will be launched in the US. Experts say Google’s plan is to rent voice and data capacity from two leading operators in the US- Sprint and T-Mobile, while using existing wi-fi hotspots.

Google says it plans to let its subscribers make calls over Wi-fi Network, without the use of an app.
