"But the founder of another wireless upstart thinks that’s just fine with Google. “They’re not trying to massively disrupt,” said Stephen Stokols, president of FreedomPop. Instead, he thinks it’s a replay of Google Fiber, the company’s superfast Internet service. It’s available in just a few cities, but Google Fiber’s popularity is goading major broadband companies to boost their network speeds, making Google’s online offerings more attractive.

FreedomPop offers features similar to Project Fi, such as phone calling over Wi-Fi networks and the right to roll over unused data bits. But Stokols thinks Google’s biggest innovation is a phone that can switch between multiple carriers."
