Google is all set to launch its wireless service as early as today. This is a big move for the Internet giant towards the telecom industry, and this service will allow users to pay for just the amount of data they use, as per the Wall Street Journal.
The Google wireless launch has come as a surprise to many who thought it will take a longer time. It was reported earlier by The Verge that Google is about to announce its wireless service in a few months.
The telecom service industry is expected to grow with this launch. Currently, the company is going to resell its wireless service to Sprint and T-Mobile. The service will switch between the two providers depending on what is available.
For the time being, the service will only be available for Nexus 6 users. Sundar Pichai, Google’s head of product, mentioned in the conference just a month back that the service is not meant to interrupt current the wireless industry.
Most telecom service providers today ask their customers to take a data pack, and in many cases, data expires without being used. According to a survey carried out by Validas in 2013, a user pays around $28 per month for unused data.
