WSJ: Google in talks with Dish over wi-fi community partnership
Google’s presence within the cellular market is robust, this a lot we all know. What with the small matter of a massively common cellular OS, some fairly common hardware, and fingers already within the community-supplier pie. However what if there was only one extra itch it wanted to scratch, one huge, wi-fi operator-formed itch? Properly, The Wall Road Journal asserts (by way of its nameless sources) that talks between the large G and the lately spectrum-authorised operator Dish are already happening. The identical report can also be fast to minimize the development of those conferences, including that Dish is at present speaking with a variety of corporations at an “exploratory stage.” Dish’s Chairman, Charlie Ergen, was confirming nothing both, merely teasing that a few of the potential companions are corporations “who want to be within the business.” In fact, Dish may simply be enjoying it cool, and Google sniffing round potential cellular compadres is not shocking in any respect. We might think about “want to be within the business” has been a mantra for a while.
