Would you sign up for a Google wireless plan over Verizon or AT&T? [telecom]

Through an agreement with T-Mobile and Sprint, Google is on its way to becoming the newest wireless carrier in the US, according to reports. What does this say about Google's overall ambitions?

Google is making unprecedented steps into the telecom game, indicating the tech company wants to be far more than just your search engine or e-mail provider.

Mountain View, Calif.-based Google has inked deals with Sprint and T-Mobile to become a wireless carrier, according to technology website The Information citing unnamed sources. There are no details yet on what this service will look like or when it will begin. But it does mean that Google will use existing cell towers to sell wireless plans to consumers - a move that could uproot the already competitive wireless provider field. This means Google not only wants to provide customers with now nearly-ubiquitous Internet services, but control how these services reach customers.
