Google Could Be Your Next Mobile Carrier as Early as This Year
Google MVNO’s coming?
Google wants to be your next wireless carrier and could start offering talk and data plans as early as this year.
The company is getting closer to offering cellular plans to customers, according to a report in The Information.
Last year, the publication reported that Google executives were thinking about launching a wireless service in regions where it already offers its Google Fiber Internet and TV service. Now, Google is reportedly working on a deal with Sprint and T-Mobile.
By becoming a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), Google could buy “wholesale access” from Sprint and T-Mobile networks and then sell cellular plans to its own customers.
