Google Deselect Will Be Telecommunications Operator

Google's move to deliver services and technologies related to telecommunications networks, such as Project and Project Loon Fi, had caused concern that the company plans to foray into the field of telecommunications services.

Responding to that, Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, during a visit to Jakarta, on Monday, denied that Google has no plans in that direction (into a telecom operator). According to him, for now Google prefers to cooperate with telecom operators.

Therefore, to be able to do it independently, required permits related spectrum license to use, given such permission is currently only held by telecommunications operators. Therefore, it chose to focus on cooperation with local operators.

"We are still focused on cooperation with local operators. Previously, we had also just make cooperation with the three carriers, such as XL, Telkomsel and Indosat. And for now the focus is still on it," said Brin, when met at the Ministry of Communication, Monday (12/28/2015)

On the occasion, Brin also confirmed that the latest Google services, Project Fi, only to be held in the United States. However, he did not dismiss if it also opens up the possibility of cooperation with other parties outside the United States.

"Project Fi is the only thing we do in the US. We do have an interest to collaborate with several parties outside the United States related Fi technologies. But, for implementation only in the United States," said Brin.

Project Fi itself is a mobile service delivery program that is easy and fast, direct to the phone that Google initiated. For the United States alone, Google is working with two well-known mobile operators, Sprint and T-Mobile.

Not only cooperate with the cellular service provider, Project Fi can also work with Wi-Fi networks. In order to do this, this technology will directly connect mobile phone users to open Wi-Fi networks and is considered to have the most excellent and stable network.
