Google has founded a world-wide subsidiary called G-Mobile in 2011 (bought different mobile providers all over the world in 2010). G-Mobile is the biggest mobile telephone provider in 2013, far ahead of T-Mobile, Vodafone, Verizon and all the others.
G-Mobile has over 800 million customers in 2013. G-Mobile speciality is to provide free high speed mobile internet access within all of it’s tariffs.
G-Mobile offers, at a minimum, 3G speed and allows VOIP and tethering in its network for everybody.
Only ordinary GSM calls have to be paid, G-Mobile offers a 2,99 $ flatrate for calls within its own network and a 9.99 $ flatrate for calls outside the G-Mobile network. Free calls are possible, if the users accept ads.
G-Mobile users need a Google account, and payments will be down via Google Checkout.
G-Mobile handsets work with virtual SIM cards, there’s no need for a physical SIM card any longer. Your telephone number is connected with your Google account.
G-Mobile only works with Android and Google accounts, but with any hardware.
Google has never built any own hardware or GPhones in the last three years, as widely predicted in 2009, but in 2013 you can buy simple G-Mobile based handsets for less than 100$ everywhere…
