Google to offer wireless service in the U.S., but not to challenge the four major mobile operators
Google will most likely become a T-Mobile and Sprint MVNO. Rumors that Google was going to become a mobile virtual network operator, re-selling wireless capacity from the two carriers, started appearing in January. Part of the rumor has Google offering its wireless customers discounted prices on Nexus devices.
Mr. Pichai said that Google would go through T-Mobile and Sprint's cellular networks and hot spots, picking the best signals for routing calls, text and data. The goal is for seamless hand-offs from cellular to Wi-Fi and vice versa in order to prevent calls from dropping. The real question though, is whether this will create bad feelings between Google and Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T.
