According to a report in The Information, Google is getting ready to become a wireless service provider in the United States. The move will allow the search giant to directly manage the call and data usage of its customers.
Google’s wireless service is said to utilize the infrastructure of Sprint and T-Mobile in the United States like other mobile virtual network operators do. This will allow the Mountain View-based based giant to save on the massive costs associated with building its own network.
Google will allegedly try to undercut the already low rates that T-Mobile and Sprint offer. Originally, the company originally strived to launch the service in the fall of last year.
