Google is gearing up to launch an experimental mobile network in the U.S. Google’s SVP of products, Sundar Pichai, said at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that we should start to see the results of the company’s MVNO mobile network effort in the “coming months” in the U.S., merging cell and WiFi networks in a “seamless” way
He described the company’s efforts in a bit more detail when asked about the company’s mobile network efforts and specifically the MVNO. Pichai referred to Android and how it has built that out and said that On the subject of a Google branded network in the form of an MVNO.
We believe that Google may Announce Its Upcoming U.S. Mobile Network in Google I/O 2015 in San Francisco on May 28-29, 2015.
The company has also been working on building out fixed networks through Google Fibre. These too have seen limited roll outs in specific cities, and that could prove to be a model for how its mobile network might evolve.
