World's most popular search engine giant has not only been exploring into the depths of all internet related hardwares and softwares, but at the same time now the reports online have emerged suggesting that the company is also stretching its arm towards entering into the wireless industry.
In other words, Google is planning for its own wireless network that customers could use to make calls, send texts and browse the web on their mobiles. Instead of building masts, however, Google is in talks to buy access to existing 3G and 4G networks at wholesale prices, and sell the connectivity back to customers at a cheaper rate.
According to the news reports, the company has already been talking to US-based Verizon and Sprint about leasing wireless capacity to launch a mobile service. The company executives are considering to offer wireless service in areas where it has already deployed Google Fiber high-speed internet offering 1Gbps broadband service.
So far, Google has already launched service in Kansas City. And it's building Google Fiber in Austin, Texas, and Provo, Utah. It also recently announced plans to expand the broadband service to several more cities.
The Verge says that Google is interested in becoming a mobile virtual network operator or MVNO, buying access to a larger network at wholesale rates and reselling it to customers.
