Google is known for the Internet as well as the “Google Nexus” devices- that are pure Android. Also, Google offers Internet service in select cities but did you know that Google is working on dropping its hat into the wireless service ring? Like many projects, Google Project Fi has not released anything about becoming a possible wireless provider.
