Google is reportedly planning to launch its own wireless network.

The company executives are considering offering wireless service in areas where it has already installed Google Fiber high-speed internet.

According to the Verge, Google is interested in becoming a mobile virtual network operator or MVNO, buying access to a larger network at wholesale rates and reselling it to customers.

Meanwhile, sources have revealed that the company engaged in talks with Verizon about the possibility in early 2014.

It also talked to Sprint about a similar possibility in early 2013, before the company was officially acquired by Softbank, the report added.
