Google and Dish Network allegedly in talks for new wireless service

SomePgmr writes "Google and Dish Network are reportedly in talks to partner up for a new wireless service to contend against market competitors like Verizon Wireless and AT&T, according to the Wall Street Journal. The wireless service would extend to both cellular and Internet connections.

This news hot on the heels of the recent developments in Google’s own expansion of its fiber-optic Internet services, beginning in Kansas City, KS. Google hopes to eventually expand the lightning fast connection to the rest of the country, but it has limited wireless options in a market saturated by the big four telecom companies."
