Google has been working on a solution for mobile service for a while. We haven’t necessarily received any official confirmation, but it has been in reports and rumors for a while. Now, it seems we may be closer than ever to that becoming a reality.
The Information has a report that Nick Fox, a Google executive, is leading what’s called “Project Nova”, which will see Google buying wholesale access to service from T-Mobile and Sprint to provide to consumers. This would make it an MVNO.
Google is always looking for ways to push companies to think for the consumer and push to be better. Just look at Google Fiber, which has done exactly that in the cities it has been released. It will be interesting to see how Google does this as an MVNO and not an actual carrier.
I personally like the idea of Google providing wireless plans, and would be willing to try it out. Would you give it a shot?
