Google is believed to be working on a new wireless carrier, relying on Sprint and T-Mobile’s networks for data connectivity. A new report suggests that this service could be officially announced today by the Mountain View company. This service which was initially known as Google Nova was believed to be known as Project Fi thanks to a revelation made by an app.
This wireless service from Google is said to offer the ability to switch between different network types seamlessly, while also offering the ability to share data with different devices without requiring to change SIMs. Google will also heavily rely on WiFi calling to ensure that users don’t have to use cellular networks at all times.
Google’s move is commendable and we’re hoping that this will offer inspiration to the current crop of wireless carriers to push for consumer satisfaction rather than focusing on the bottom line. It is said that Google’s new carrier will only work on the Nexus 6 initially, although this hasn’t been confirmed yet.
What do you expect from Google’s new wireless service? Any feature in particular that you would like to see?
