[BGR] Google Wants to be a Wireless Carrier - Page 6

post #51 of 124
I don't feel good about this. I mean sure their setup in Kansas is awesome and so is Android, Chrome, Chromebooks, Google Wallet, Maps, Search, etc etc..drool.gif....But there comes a point where an awesome company becomes the overlords of our entire planet. I for one, will not stand for this take over, even if I'm basking in the glory of awesome tech.

13% tax, higher commodity prices, it ain't free yo

IL gets roughly 7% Tax (averaged), and we have Income Tax (tax taken out of our pay, my "lowly" 12/Hr was taxed at 17% I believe, $396 for 40 hours. The more you make, the more % they take). But I will not dispute you guys have expensive stuff up there, a single Double Quarter Pounder was $6.78 when I was up there for Extravalanza, that's as much as an entire meal here.

Anyway, Canada is right next door. Google starts here, they'll probably go to you guys before the EU.

We have pretty high income tax too, (15%+)
There's no free lunch in this world

That'd be nice. I'd be more than okay with that, lol. They've got the money to start it up. And they do it better than everyone. I think their main goal is raise standards to what they should be, tbh. Gigabit Fiber and a widespread fast wireless network would definitely do that.

With how restrictive Apple is with their stuff, I'm not sure I'd want them hosting my service and data.

ORLY?

AOL, Yahoo!, Microsoft and Apple would like a word with you.

Why? None of those companies are competition for Verizon or AT&T.

Google will never match their network. Or, it'll be a long, long time.

Some of you act like just because Google wants to be a wireless provider, that they've already done it and have a huge network. There's so much that goes into something like this. Lots of legal hurdles too.

I agree.

Especially after Judge Greene's ruling back in the '80's with AT&T, when AT&T was ordered to be broken up when a telecom company wanted to get into computers. Now 30 years later, we have a computer software/hardware company wanting to be a telecom company (with fiber to the home and now wireless).

Sorry, I just don't see it being allowed in the US.

This too.
