Google, Dish Network could launch their own wireless network

Google and Dish Network are currently in talks to provide a wireless network

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Nov 16, 2012 5:26 pm

The wireless service here in the U.S. is absolutely abysmal as customers and handset manufacturers are caught in a whirlwind of phone exclusivity, price increases and data throttling across the majority of our wireless networks. Something needs to change soon, and hopefully, that change could be a new wireless service between Google and Dish Network if recent reports turn out to be a true.

According to the WSJ, Google and Dish Network have been in talks over possibly partnering up to create their own wireless service. As of now, the talks are in their very early stages as Google currently isn't the only company Dish Network is in talks with, but seeing as Google has been moving ahead with its Google Fiber, it would be interesting to see the company also deliver a wireless network to its potential customers.

 

If the plan works out and Google and Dish Network partner up to provide a wireless network, it would be interesting to see what types of devices will be supported within the network. Android devices would certainly be a no-brainer, but I'm curious to see if iOS devices like the iPhone or iPad will be invited into the party or if it will be an Android-only network.
