Google Unveils Wireless Service

Google is unveiling their new wireless data network, codenamed Project Fi, in the coming months. By utilizing large WiFi networks, and integrating with Sprint and T-Mobile’s cellular data networks, the company hope to reinvent the wireless access. Essentially, a subscriber can be on a 4G LTE network for voice or data, and the 802.11 network can pick up where it left off and continue the transmission. Essentially, Google doesn’t want to replace the cellular network, they want to extend it. The service is not yet public but may be offered to some subscribers on a testing basis.
