Rumor: Google and Dish to Build a Mobile Wireless Network

By November 17, 2012

Follow me on:

The latest rumor doing its rounds in the mobile world is that Google is in talks with Dish Network, the famed satellite TV provider, to discuss plans of building a mobile wireless network, which could compete with the major carriers in the US, such as AT&T and Verizon.

Charlie Ergen, Chairman of Dish has declined to confirm anything officially. But he has admitted that the company is interested in holding talks with potential partners which would also like to enter into the mobile wireless network industry.

Google is a likely contender in this race, as it already has a remarkable bank of Android device manufacturers and users, plus the financial resources required to build this sort of a business.

Dish, which had already considered a similar deal with T-Mobile last year, now has 40MHz of spectrum licenses, with which it plans to build a 4G LTE network. It is now supposedly awaiting FCC approval to go ahead with its plans.

    I love tools like this. I in reality have this exact
    model. But the strengths gets even worse because
    it will get older.
