Google signs a deal with Sprint to offer wireless service in the US
Google was planning to become a wireless service provider yesterday and within no time they are going live with their plan. The company is going to offer wireless service in the United States according to Bloomberg Business Week. The search giant has signed an agreement with Sprint where Google will operate as a mobile virtual network operator and in return paying for the capacity on Sprint’s network. Google will be also selling the service to their customers.
The facilitation of this huge lucrative deal will be carried out by Masayoshi Son (President of SoftBank). There is no information as to why Google is getting involved in the wireless business. We presume that Google will be able to sell advertisements on mobile to a larger audience. This is just the start of the wireless service and there will be a lot of development in the arena because the search giant is heading to become a wireless service giant too. Mobile Virtual Network Operator is shortly known as MVNO. We are pretty sure that the future of wireless service lies in the hands of Google as they have started to build something concrete by striking this deal with Sprint.
