JUST SO RECENTLY, Google unveiled its long awaited phone service, called Project Fi, putting the search giant in competition with Verizon, AT&T and other wireless service providers.

In addition to its new turf, the service is an attempt to blend several communication tools and the multiplying ways of calling people  -cellular calls, online calls like those offered by Skype  -into a single phone number and service. 

For now, project Fi could be considered an experiment. It will be available only to people using Google's Nexus 6 phone, limiting its reach.

Analysts see the new service as a bid to reimaging phone calls so that they have greater overlap with Google's expanding world of devices and services.

Unlike your typical cell service, Project Fi will mix traditional wireless technology, where calls are routed through cellular towers, with the wireless Internet service found in Starbucks, air ports and elsewhere.

Google has teamed with  Sprint and T-Mobile to provide the traditional wireless service, and said it had about a million wireless hot spots for the rest.

"Wherever you're connected to Wi-Fi   -whether that's at home, your favourite coffee shop or your Batcave   -you can talk and  text  like you normally do.'' wrote Nick Fox, Google's  vice president of communications products, in a blog post.

"If you leave an area of  Wi-Fi coverage, your call will seamlessly transition from Wi-Fi to cell networks so your conversation doesn't miss a beat.

In addition to changing networks, the service will move users phone numbers between screens, so that they can talk and text on phones, tablets or laptops. And as with most things Google does, the service is meant to be cheap.

Traditional cellphone carriers like  AT&T and Verizon charge customers upwards of $100 a month for their services,  including phone calls-and-mobile data. Google's service will be $20 a month for basic voice and text service, along with a flat $10 per gigabyte of cellular data.

Since it's hard to predict your data usage, you'll get credit for the full value of your unused data," according to blog post.

Let's say you go with 3GB for $30 and only use 1.4GB one month. You'll get $16 back, so you only pay for what you use."

In many ways, the wireless service is similar to the  Google Fiber Internet service that has been introduced in a handful of American cities.

Google is piggybacking on giant physical networks that are owned by other companies, creating a barrier that, for now at least, limits Google's competitive threat to traditional carriers. 

But Google has a long history of trying to cut out the middlemen   -including Internet service providers, online stores and delivery businesses   -that stand between the company and the users.

With wireless service, Google will be operating on what is called a mobile virtual network operator, which provides a service on  other mobile carriers' networks.

''It's always an interesting business because you are dependent on the companies who you are trying to compete with," said Jan Dawson, chief analyst at  Jackdaw Research. "And they will only support you if they think you're targeting a niche they can't target themselves."

Over the last few years, Google has been itself around mobile devices that have become the primary way people use the Internet.

But Google has remained two steps away from mobile users. Unlike Apple, which makes its own phones and essentially dictates  the terms of its service to mobile carriers-  

Google's Android mobile software is distributed to phone manufacturers, who adjust it to their liking, and then through wireless carriers, who bundle their own services on top.

The new service gives Google  ''freedom and more control over the experience.'' Mr Dawson said.

With respectful dedication to all the Technology companies of the world. See Ya all on !WOW!   -the World Students Society Computers-Internet-Wireless:
