Actually inaccurate information here, Google Fi phone plan using pixel 5 and my wife and I use the Google vpn for free. Can't remember if it was also an option when I was using a Motorola on Fi or not.
Location for me is always showing LA
Several times in your article, you mentioned that you haven't yet had an opportunity to try out the Google VPN. Obviously it's not a primary product, but I'm not sure how you can keep comparing it to all these other products if you haven't even tried it yet. It seems this article was just to sell VPN services for the other brands, rather than give a fair assessment of a product that you have taken the time to familiarize yourself with, before giving a review.
