Google today said the company will announce Google-branded wireless service at some point in the coming months. The comments were made by Google's Sundar Pichai, who was speaking at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona. Pichai says Google hopes to use the service to highlight newer technologies, not compete with incumbent companies.

Various reports have suggested that Google is prepared to partner with Sprint and T-Mobile, but Google still hasn't confirmed any details.

Bummer, I was so hoping with Google's deep pockets for a REAL coast-to-coast #3 carrier to compete with AT&T & Verizon. Still no one I guess. Hoping America Movil with all their brands (Straight Talk, Net10, Page Plus, Total, Tracfone, Simple Mobile) would hope to not be just an MVNO here foreve...

T-Mobile is going to launch native coverage in Montana by the end of this year (2015). This should be the coverage by EOY 2015: http://i.imgur.com/9zhIg80.png

No, it's not a lot in geographical terms (MT is a big state!), but they're going to hit m...
