Nah, they should buy T-Mobile, the original, first, Android partner.

Back when nobody knew about Android?

AT&T offered $38B for them. That's a bit much even for Google. Sprint's market cap on the other hand is just over $10B right now. Google could buy Sprint for one-third of what AT&T will pay for T-Mobile, leaving plenty of money to build out LTE.

I think if DIDO pans out Google will build wireless networks in virtually every major city.

It would never get FCC approval. Google doesn't have the lobbying power like AT&T.

Google doesn't compete with Verizon, AT&T or T-Mobile now. Google buying Sprint wouldn't decrease competition. What's the problem?

Because government officials are morons. They're going to make a case that Google will only have android devices on Sprint (which wouldn't be the case).

Or maybe they should buy T-Mobile and Sprint to compete against Verizon and AT&T, you really think we'd have caps and overages if Google was a wireless provider? To be honest though I'm curious as to why Google has wireless spectrum, unless they plan on building out a small cell network for testing purposes, which is likely.
