Google Wireless Service Said To Switch Between Carriers

Google Inc. (GOOG,GOOGL) may provide subscribers with the ability to choose the best signal from a variety of sources in its upcoming wireless service, thus ending the reliance on a single carrier, The Wall Street Journal reported, quoting people familiar with the plan.

The service is expected to feature new technology that would search through cellular connections provided by Sprint Corp. and T-Mobile US Inc. and Wi-Fi hotspots. It will pick up whichever offers the best signal to route calls, texts and data, the report added.

The service may be rolled out in the first half of 2015. It could be available nationwide, though there may be delays as the previously scheduled launches were postponed.

GOOG closed up 1 percent on Friday at $539.95, and GOOGL settled up 0.9 percent at $541.95.
