Google Makes Moves in Overseas Mobile Market

Apr 06, 2015

Google is always up to something. According to The Telegraph, Google is talking to the owner of mobile operator Three about allowing Americans to use their mobile phones while traveling at no extra cost. This is a problem that has long plagued business travelers as well as people on vacation, who find the costs of using their phones abroad prohibitive.

This is just the latest move in Google's quest to establish its own mobile network by cobbling together deals to use existing infrastructure. Many see this as a way to put pressure on existing mobile service providers.
