According to The Wall Street Journal, Google is poised to unveil its wireless service as early as tomorrow. Google has been rumored to be creating an MVNO for months now, but the project seems to be nearing fruition. The key selling point of the service is that customers will only pay for the data that they actually use each month. Rather than paying for a certain allotment that they won’t necessarily use, Google will allow customers to use as much or as little as they’d like, knowing that they only pay for what they use.
Google’s MVNO will be a partnership with Sprint and T-Mobile, allowing customers to switch between the networks depending on which is strongest. Additionally, the service will use Wi-Fi calling whenever available, allowing customers to get clearer calls in more places. To begin, Google will enable the service only with its own smartphone, the Nexus 6, though it’s said that the service will expand to other devices if successful.
For now, we’re going to have to wait and see what Google does. While WSJ is reporting a launch for tomorrow, we ultimately could end up waiting longer to see Google’s MVNO revealed, as the company won’t announce it until its good and ready to.
