Google Says Report of It Creating a New Carrier Network with Dish is Untrue

A recent news report claims Google is in talks with Dish to create a new major US mobile carrier network but the tech company denies it…

Since 2015, Google has operated a MVNO or mobile virtual network operator, comprised of T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular. And, it rebranded its Google Fi Project to Google Fi last year. Now, a news report claims the company is interested in creating a new major mobile carrier in the US.

Google-Dish US Carrier Creation Deal Rumor Denied

Alphabet director Alan Mulally — former Ford CEO — has discussed with satellite-television company Dish creating a new telecom, according to the New York Post

“The idea is for Alphabet-owned Google and Dish to launch a new wireless giant with the help of assets acquired from T-Mobile, which is now under pressure from the Department of Justice to aid such a project in order to get clearance for its $26 billion merger with Sprint, according to sources close to the situation.”

However, a Google spokesperson admittedly denies this is the case, saying, “These claims are simply false. Google is not having any conversations with Dish about creating a wireless network.”

Even if true, it would require a lot of legal wrangling to pull off.
