Google Mobile May Include Free International Roaming

Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG,NASDAQ:GOOGL) mobile service may include free international roaming.


Google is reportedly in talks with companies to allow for free international roaming for subscribers to its planned mobile service. Included in these talks are Hutchison Whampoa, which owns the UK’s Three and other mobile networks, reports Cnet.

Google announced its plans to offer its own mobile service earlier this year. The service would use existing infrastructure belonging to other wireless carriers. While the service is likely going to be small when it starts, it could offer a fresh take on mobile services, Cnet notes.

When the Google mobile network launches, it will be in areas that have access to Google Fiber. This will give customers living in Kansas, Texas and Utah access to the service, reports Daily Mail.
