Google Inc, the internet giant is planning to sell their phones to the customer directly with their own devices without the help of other manufacturers and are now planning to launch its own telecom service to manage calls and mobile data over the cellular network, an inside source confirmed.
Google is expected to reach deals to buy wholesale access to Sprint and T-Mobile mobile voice and data networks, making it a mobile virtual network operator, the technology news website said.
The project is titled ‘Nova‘ by the Google and is expected to hit the market in this year only. Google recently told the FCC that high-frequency spectrum could be used for “the next generation of unlicensed broadband services” and “entirely new technologies and innovations.” It is unclear when Google’s MVNO will surface, if at all, but the company is reportedly planning to sell device and cellular service packages through an online storefront.
Google plans to sell their telecom services in places where they are already selling their internet service, the Google Fiber.
It was not clear how widely Google plans to offer the wireless service, how much it would cost or which mobile device manufacturers, if any, have already agreed to work with Google for its new service.
