Is New Wireless Internet Service On The Horizon From Google?
According to reports, something secretive is going on at Google headquarters in Mountain View, California. Google has apparently applied to the Federal Communications Commission with a description of the project, but has requested confidential treatment of the information. Apparently, the company is building a network for wireless internet service and using spectrum from Clearwire to test it.
The project, a couple of paragraphs of which appeared on a blog post recently, would involve the building of a dense network, capable of carrying very high data loads. The company stated in its application that it would be testing both indoor and outdoor base stations, each with a range of up to two hundred meters for indoor, and up to one thousand meters for outdoor. Experts noting the frequencies requested by the company for use say that the only application for this range would be if a company had business designs on a mobile service.
