Google launches mobile phone network in US

  • Technology giant Google has launched its Project Fi mobile phone network, which will rent data and voice capacity from operators T-Mobile and Sprint and make use of wi-fi hotspots that are already existing.

    To begin with, this network is being offered to owners of Nexus 6 handsets in the US.

    Unlike in the case of Google Fiber, the company’s broadband service, Project Fi does not involve building new infrastructure. While some experts say this could restrict Project Fi’s growth, others believe that Google’s entry could change the dynamics and business model of the sector.
