We've been hearing about Google's rumored wireless service for a little while now, but rumor has it that the Mountain View-based search giant may reveal its wireless service as soon as... today.

The Wall Street Journal is the source of the rumor according to their sources, with the wireless service also working on Sprint and T-Mobile's networks, and only on the Nexus 6 for now. The Google-powered network should be capable of switching between the two networks depending on which one is feeding your Nexus 6 with a stronger signal.

 

Customers will reportedly be able to pay for just the data they use, versus having to buy an allotted amount and then wasting it if they don't use it all by the end of the month. At Mobile World Congress last month, Google's Senior VP Sundar Pichai said: "We don't intend to be a carrier at scale. I think we're at the stage where we need to think of hardware, software, and connectivity together. We want to break down the barriers on how connectivity works".
