Google plans to sell wireless service to consumers after striking deals with Sprint and T-Mobile, according to published reports.
The technology giant is looking to push the wireless industry to cut prices and increase data speeds to make sure its services such as Gmail and YouTube can be easily accessed.
Google has done this before. For example, it offers Google Fiber broadband Internet service in some U.S. cities.
Google has reached separate agreements with Sprint and T-Mobile to resell service on those networks, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing anonymous sources.
Google’s plans were first reported by The Information, a technology news service.
When asked for comment, T-Mobile spokeswoman Anne Marshall replied: “I recommend you contact Google.”
Sprint could not be immediately reached for comment. Google did not respond to a request for comment.
