Re: get ready
Google tends to dip into too many fields, yes.  It's just the way they do things.  I think they operate on the idea of trying lots of things and going with what seems to stick.  Although I think in this case, 5G will pay off very well for them.

Re: get ready
Google is a force to be dealt with, that's for sure. How the others will compete will be interesting, although I wonder if Google is tryin to dip into far too many fields and may not come up as successful despite boatloads of money to pay the bills, success or not.

Re: get ready
Yeah, probably smart to partner with carriers to get the widespread cell coverage. Spectrum would have been the big issue if they tried to do it all themselves.

Then they work on the hand-offs between the networks and adding the really fast network elements.

get ready
With Android, then Google Drive, then Google Fiber and now Google MVNO, Google is set to disrupt the telecom business. It already owns some important components of the mobile eco system. So Telecoms of the world get ready.
