Google is never satisfied, and this should be making wireless carriers very afraid.
According to The Information, Google is planing to launch its own wireless network in areas where they've already installed Google Fiber high-speed Internet. As of now, it looks like the company is looking to buy a large network, and then sell it to customers. Fiber is currently installed in Provo, Utah, and Kansas City, Missouri, with Austin, Texas, next in line. In the near future, the company plans to install it in Atlanta, Georgia; Portland, Oregon; and San Jose, California. While this might seem like a drop in the bucket compared to the entire nation, when Google announced that it was launching Fiber in Austin, Verizon rushed to install its own high-speed Internet service. If Google expands its wireless network, which it is likely to do after its launch, it will create more competition for Verizon and AT&T, who already have a testy relationship with customers. Google, so far, has been delivering nothing but good things for Fiber customers — and Android doesn't hurt, either.
