Google expected to launch new wireless service tomorrow

As early as 2012, we learned that Google could be working on a wireless service and was rumored to be in partnership with Dish Network. However, the idea was soon debunked or was discontinued early on because according to a Google executive, regulations blocked the company from entering the phone service market.
