Google Is Working on a Wireless Home Internet Service

In 2011, Google jumped into the broadband space with Google Fiber, providing high-speed Internet and cable services in some U.S. cities. The reasonably priced, super-fast service is incredibly popular in the few cities where it’s available, and offers a much-welcome alternative to Comcast, and Time Warner Cable. 
Now Google has announced even grander plans: It wants to beam wireless broadband directly into homes all over America.
While Google hasn’t yet figured out how to make the technology work, a solution would represent a big boon to the broadband industry, Re/code reported. It would solve what’s called the “last mile problem,” which is typically addressed by the slow, expensive process of stringing a web of wires directly into homes.
Google Fiber is now working on connecting wireless towers to existing fiber lines by experimenting with different wireless technologies to make that happen. If Google develops a solution, its parent company, Alphabet, would be able to build a nationwide network to compete with existing giants like A&T, Verizon and Comcast.
Google is not the only tech company experimenting with this development: Facebook announced an initiative Wednesday to develop wireless Internet. While Facebook doesn’t want to build or operate the wireless networks, Google Access, which oversees Fiber, does hope to do so.
“We’re really transitioning from our earlier work, which was more of an experiment, to a real business,” Access CEO Craig Barratt told Re/code.
