Would you use Google’s MVNO Service if it Were Ad-Supported?
As I watching one of my favorite podcasts the other day, they began discussing news of Google’s MVNO (aka. Nova) surfacing and it got me thinking about how bad I would want to use Nova (have I told you that I am a Google enthusiast and that they could never do wrong by me?).
The guys in the podcast were throwing around ideas about how Google would run Nova: whether they would try to have unlimited data plans like Sprint or if they would use limited data plans but exclude certain services (such as Play Services) from counting towards your data allotment.
Now I’m assuming, and hoping, that Google will likely make their service as competitive as T-Mobile is trying to do with their UnCarrier movement, but it got me thinking, and as funny as it may sound, I came to the conclusion that if Google were to offer me unlimited data via there MVNO, there’s nothing I wouldn’t sacrifice (even if it meant Google going as far as putting ads on my phone). I mean, give me a SIM card with a Google logo and I’d pretty much sign up for any plan Google decided to offer.
Now I ask you all: What would you go through (phone-wise) to get a reasonably priced, unlimited data plan from Google? Would you deal with slow speeds? Ads? Maybe you don’t need unlimited data and would just rather have data-excluded apps? Sound off in the comments below and let us know!
