On January 22, reports surfaced that Google is seriously considering launching its own name within the wireless carrier industry, thanks to partnerships inked with T-Mobile and Sprint, the fourth and third largest carriers in the United States, respectively.Now, further details have surfaced regarding the proposed carrier from the search giant. According to a report published by The Wall Street Journal, any phone that’s running Google’s MVNO will be able to switch between Sprint, T-Mobile or a Wi-Fi hotspot depending on the carrier quality in any particular area, which was previously reported.
Now, though, the report indicates that Google is aiming to launch their wireless service packages as early as the first half of 2015. However, in typical fashion, the report also indicates that this grand scheme from Google has been rumored for launch in the past, even as recent as the last half of 2014, but has seen its fair share of delays for whatever reason. Indeed, the WSJ suggests this new plan could be delayed, too.
Also, while previously suggested that Google’s service could see a launch in only a few selected regional locations, Google is apparently now looking to launch it nationwide.
What do you think of Google’s wireless network aspirations?
