Google As Telecom

Google seems to be getting more involved as an Internet service carrier if some news reports are to be believed.  Although Google denies interest, the Guardian Unlimited suggests that Google is thinking about bidding on reclaimed wireless spectrum that would be up for auction in the U.K.  There is another report that the company is getting involved in a consortium that would lay fiber optic cable in the Pacific in 2009.  The result would give Google at-cost network access to Asia.  Of course, we’re still waiting to see if Google bids on wireless spectrum in the United States if and when that auction proceeds.  And then there’s the running rumor of a Google phone.  For a company that claims few ambitions in the telecommunications realm, there’s an awful lot of noise in that direction.
