Rumor: Google could start its own wireless service soon

Google already provides internet service for customers through its Fiber service (only limited to a few cities at the moment). However a new rumor suggests that the Mountain View company is also working on starting a new cellular service in the country. We have heard reports about this previously, but nothing noteworthy has cropped up until now.

Some sources familiar with the matter have reportedly heard from Google that this service will be rolled out in areas where Google Fiber is currently available. It is said Google wants to team up with either Verizon Wireless or T-Mobile to launch as a MVNO in these regions.

Of course most of this is only a rumor at this point, so we can’t comment on its future. But it certainly sounds like a feasible option for Google, given that it already offers hardware through its retail channels. While merging with Verizon would help them leverage the vast customer base on offer, T-Mobile will most likely be a better option given its relationship with the public. For now though, take this with a pinch of salt. But as soon as we have something substantial, we’ll make sure you’re the first to know.
