The Wall Street Journal reports Google’s upcoming and rumored wireless service won’t rely on one single carrier, and instead will switch between networks to give customers the best wireless signal.

The service will feature new technology that would hunt through cellular connections provided by Sprint and T-Mobile and Wi-Fi hotspots, picking whichever offers the best signal to route calls, texts and data, the newspaper’s sources said. 

The service is said to launch nationwide as early as the first half of 2015. It’s said not to be based on aggressive pricing, but that you’ll be able to get a more reliable connection at all times. The Wall Street Journal says Google’s aim is to get the best and fastest wireless connection without users having to worry about a long-term relationship with a carrier.

The Information, who has a solid track record reporting on Google, was the first to bring word of a Google wireless service last week.

Google had previously been testing a wireless network at its Mountain View headquarters as early as 2013. Some of the details on this wireless network come from an application the Google submitted to the FCC asking for an experimental license to create what the application called an “experimental radio service.” The application asked for approval to operate a network with a two-mile radius covering its headquarters.

    Very interesting.

  • Paymon John Vafa

    It’s kind of interesting. They didn’t allow sprint and T-Mobile to combine. So Google is now going to profit off using both networks… Lol

      Hopefully Google can give Verizon and AT&T a run for the money. This competition will be great for us consumers.

        I hope they bring back unlimited data, that shit was $30 back then.

    So tired of choosing reliable service, or cheap service. Wish someone offered both.

    • Rowan09

      T-mobile offers both in NY.

      • Justice and Malice

        Until you walk into a building. Factually T-Mobile does not have enough low band spectrum to penetrate into most decent size buildings.

      • Rowan09

        Where exactly are you located? I work in the City and have no issues, I even get signal in the basement of a 15 story building.

      • Donovan

        This is an international T-Mobile problem

  • iPhoneWINS
