Google to Launch As MVNO On Sprint, T-Mobile

Comments Off on Google to Launch As MVNO On Sprint, T-Mobile 6

Google has brokered wholesale deals with Sprint and T-Mobile US with a view to launching mobile services, it emerged this week.

The Internet giant will roll out mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) services in the U.S., the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, speculating that it might launch in areas covered by its own fibre broadband services.

The paper, which cited unnamed sources, said it does not have information on when Google plans to launch, nor on how much it will charge.

However, the sources said that Google has agreed separate MVNO deals with the third and fourth largest mobile network operators in the U.S. after lengthy negotiations with top management. Google first approached Sprint 18 months ago and because of the nature of the deal both former CEO Dan Hesse and Masayoshi Son, chairman and CEO of parent company Softbank, were involved in discussions.
