Google has reported held talks with Dish Network about partnering on a wireless service to rival AT&T and Verizon, according to the WSJ.

The talks between Dish and Google aren't advanced and could amount to nothing, one of the people said. Google is just one of several companies that Dish has held talks with recently, and the discussions with other potential partners are also at an exploratory stage, said the people familiar with the discussions. It is unclear which other companies are discussing a potential partnership with Dish.

Dish has said it wants a partner to help it build out a wireless network with the spectrum it acquired in 2008. The network could be used for mobile phone and Internet services.

Aaah, yaaaa . I can now see $29.99 monthly plans for unlimited Data, Web, Text and Calling without any throttling or monthly gigabyte capping or phony speed or hidden word deceiving tactics. And no 2 year commitments. People would stay because they want to and because the service is good and great customer service of Real People helping customers. And anyone would be able to bring any device they see fit. - that would be a great company.
