Google has announced plans to launch its own mobile network at Mobile World Congress (MWC) this week.

Google’s senior vice president, Sundar Pichai, confirmed reports that the company will become a wireless provider ‘in the coming months’.

According to The Verge, Pichai revealed that Google has been in contact with Verizon Wireless and AT&T about the network.

Pichai said: “Carriers in the US are what powers most of our Android phones, and that model works really well for us.”

During the event, Pichai said that Google wants to create a ‘seamless’ link between cellular data and Wi-Fi networks.

“We're trying to show innovations, like calls automatically reconnecting if someone drops on one end,” added Pichai.

This news comes after Google revealed its new Android for Work programme.

The new programme aims to help businesses better understand and use more Android devices in the workplace.
