Google Wireless Service In The Works (Rumor)


It looks like Google has bigger plans than just Google Fiber, according to a recent report, the company is looking into launching its own Google wireless service.

According to The Information, Google is apparently interested in becoming a mobile virtual network operator, or MVNO, the company would do this by purchasing access to a large network.

Google would purchase network access from one of the major carriers at wholesale rate and then resell it to its customers, re-branded as its own wireless service.

According to the report, Google has been in talks with the likes of Verizon early this year, and Sprint last year, before Sprint was acquired by Softbank.

Google’s new wireless network could apparently use access points from Google Fiber, and then when this service is not available, it would switch to the carrier it has teamed up with.

As yet there is no confirmation from Google that the company plans to launch its own wireless network, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know.
