As per the recent reports, Google is in the plan to get Nokia Oyj’s airplane broadband business as the Alphabet Inc. unit that aims to offer new services and reach out to more customers by offering in-flight high-speed internet. Talks, meetings are in progress and may land upon an agreement, shortly.
As per the spokesperson, who chooses not to reveal their name as the considerations or planning are private, they said that Nokia’s technology can help Google by offering a faster alternative to the existing Wi-Fi on airplanes. In the meantime, Nokia technology is working on 5G telecom stuff and put the project of developing in-flight internet technology in the lesser priority list.
Alphabet and Nokia’s representatives refuse to comment on any topic related to this. From the sources, it’s been gathered that the final decision is on the waiting list and the companies can still decide on the deal.
