If anyone where to believe the talk about how Google is trying to take over the world, there’s no better time than now, as the multinational corporation is preparing to join the field of mobile plans with their new, partially disclosed, project named Nova.
The talks about Google’s alleged next move started last year when, according to a report released by The Information, Google management was planning to release a wireless service pack in US areas that benefit from Google Fiber Internet and TV Service.
The Nova project is carried out by Nick Fox, product executive at Google, and, as it appears, the plan for this brand new service is to become a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), meaning to buy “wholesale access” from Sprint and T-Mobile, the two networks Google is currently negotiating with. The report also states that, for this endeavour, Google might be depending on Wi-Fi access points built on the network and existing carriers’ back-up.
With unlimited access to Sprint’s and T-Mobile’s resources, Google can sell customized cellular plans to its own users, thus delivering a well-rounded services pack, including both voice calling and data. This could be, as experts say, a landmark-type of asset for Google’s product portfolio.
Google has yet to make a direct statement about their project, however the brand new carrier plan is expected to be released sometime this year, according to various sources, including Mashable and The Information.
