Rumor: Google and Dish to Create Wireless Service in 2013

If 9To5Google can be believed, “Google-Dish wireless service is a go, plans for 2013 launch being hatched”.  It would be a data-only service, but using VOIP (Google Voice?) it could carry voice as well.

Google has shown its willingness to venture far and wide from its beginnings as a search engine company.  Could this be true?  If nothing else, it would finally put pressure on the cellular companies to bring down their prices to more reasonable levels.  It could also advance VOIP technology, which in itself would bring down costs.

Still, it is just a rumor, so I’m not holding my breath.
