In a public but little-noticed application with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission on Monday, Google asked the agency for permission to conduct tests in California across different wireless spectrums, including a rarely-used millimeter-wave frequency capable of transmitting large amounts of data.
It is unclear from the heavily redacted filing what exactly Google intends to do, but it does signal the Internet giant’s broader ambition of controlling Internet connectivity. The technology it seeks to test could form the basis of a wireless connection that can be broadcast to homes, obviating the need for an actual ground cable or fiber connection, experts say.
Google Inc. is set to unveil its new U.S. wireless service as early as Wednesday, pushing the Internet giant further into telecom and injecting fresh uncertainty into a wireless industry already locked in a price war.
In a key development, the service is expected to allow customers to pay only for the amount of data they actually use each month, people familiar with the matter said—a move that could further push carriers to do away with lucrative “breakage.”

Dismissed as yet another short-term computer fad when first released in 2011, everyone is taking Google (GOOG) Chromebooks seriously these days. According to new quarterly data from ABI Research, Chromebook shipments increased by 67% quarter-over-quarter and are now projected to double in size year-over year. The study found Acer continued to maintain its lead over other vendors in the market, including Samsung (SSNLF) , Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) , and Dell.
Smile at someone. Make someone laugh. Make someone's day! :D
I care about many things but don't take anything too seriously. I really like people with a good sense of humor and like to make people smile and laugh. I believe in the saying "laughter is the best medicine". The rest of this will be a work in progress...
Yeah, I've survived school, work, an earthquake, hurricanes, bear markets, lousy Redskins' seasons and some other things. Redskins fan! More later, maybe...maybe not...
