Google Wifi - more info please

How does Google WiFi work - do I need to purchase a data plan to go with it? I already have a Republic phone & plan.

Here’s a good place to start.


Hi @matthewt.48gzgx and welcome to the Community!

Google WiFi doesn’t work with Republic service directly per se. It’s a home WiFi router intended to be used with home Internet service, which Republic does not supply. Google WiFi as a standalone thing nor Republic supply WiFi.

Republic phones do use WiFi supplied by others for talk, text and Internet data. Others would include you (home network) an employer (work network) or public WiFi hotspots such as those available in restaurants, stores, libraries, etc.
