Actually three providers. Intelligent network switching.
It used to be Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular, but then Sprint merged into T-Mobile so there are only two now. :)

I haven't heard of them making any new deals (yet?).

You may need to manually set up your APN - Google Fi APN Settings [year]

Just wanted to mention that I have Verizon and in 99% of my city I get 50megs+ DL speed, but sitting on my couch at home and running a speed test over 4G LTE I see results like the 2.6 meg speed test you posted. As it turns out my old house is quite good at blocking cell signal - Moving out to my driveway and testing again increases my speed 10 times over or more. Might help, might not I dunno.

Nope, no go. This one has no bars. I also tried the one with the T, rebooted, it goes back how its set in the screenshot.

Not only that Google Fi is a joke, Last night I was not able to make any calls. And also I can't change any settings in the Google Fi app.

You probably should have tried Pre-Paid T-Mobile. Unless you travel a lot out side of the USA. Google Fi is mostly Non-prioritized T-Mobile. I had them for a while and ended up switching to pre-paid T-Mobile. Which is a lot cheaper then Fi was. And they are basically the same thing. Both are Non-prioritized T-Mobile. In my area anyways.

You could try switching to T-Mobiles APN setting.
