Google branches out to make headway in mobile networking

Google has adopted a clever and cost-effective strategy to go mobile – by taking the mobile virtual network operator route.

Google has long set the benchmark for disruptive services. By introducing search functionality, Gmail changed the way emails were used.

Google is now planning to deliver a similar disruption in the wireless space by launching an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) service in the US.

However, this is hardly the first time Google has attempted a foray into telecoms territory. In fact, the company has been flirting with the idea of its own mobile services for many years now. In 2008, it bid, albeit unsuccessfully, to acquire wireless spectrum in the US.

Google has now adopted a clever and cost-effective strategy to go mobile – by taking the MNVO route. This will give Google the mobile legs it so desires, yet shield it from expensive network roll-outs. For this MVNO venture, Google is planning to use Sprint's and T-Mobile's network, paying the two carriers just a usage-based fee. This strategy will allow Google to offer mobile services at highly competitive rates.

Apart from the quality of its host network, an MVNO success depends on two important factors – branding and service proposition. To start with, Google is already one of the most recognisable brands globally.

On the services side, Google is working on introducing two innovations for its MNVO. Firstly, Google will allow voice calls over Wi-Fi, a technology that is still at a nascent stage. Secondly, Google will create a free mobile roaming zone, allowing subscribers to use services at affordable rates.

Google is working on a roaming deal with Hutchison Whampoa, which runs the mobile operator 3 in countries such as the UK and Italy. Under this agreement, Google Mobile users would be able to use wireless services at their local US tariffs, while roaming on 3’s network. This is sure to attract both business and leisure travellers, helping Google win early subscribers.

Launching wireless services will represent yet another step by Google to move down the mobile value chain, where it already enjoys a significant footprint. On the software side, Google owns Android, the biggest mobile ecosystem with more than 80 per cent market share globally. Then on the hardware side, there is the Google Nexus line of smart devices. Its only missing link was having a wireless service – now this is also set to change.

As Google expands its play within the mobile value chain, it would be able to garner greater insights about its users. This augurs well for Google’s core business – advertising. With more insights, Google would be able to better contextualise the ads it serves – leading to higher response rates and higher revenues.

Although it’s early days to speculate the threat Google will pose for the bigger carriers such as AT&T and Verizon, one thing is certain – competitive prices and better services from Google will be a cause of major concern for these players. The success of other MVNOs such as Virgin Mobile (UK) and Lebara (several European countries) attests to this fact.

However, Google also faces a tough road ahead towards making its MVNO a success. It’s not enough for Google to simply offer discounted services – it’s imperative to deliver on the highest quality standards, consistent with its brand image.

Mobile services, by nature, are prone to fluctuations and outages. This is even more likely for a new operator, which is still ironing out its network arrangements. Here, an outage could attract negative publicity, tarnishing the brand image.

At such times, providing effective customer services and regaining customers’ trust could be one of the biggest challenges that Google Mobile might be up against.

How Google manages these challenges will go a long way in determining the success this MNVO venture will register.

Tips for used car buyers
  • Choose cars with GCC specifications
  • Get a service history for cars less than five years old
  • Don’t go cheap on the inspection
  • Check for oil leaks
  • Do a Google search on the standard problems for your car model
  • Do your due diligence. Get a transfer of ownership done at an official RTA centre
  • Check the vehicle’s condition. You don’t want to buy a car that’s a good deal but ends up costing you Dh10,000 in repairs every month
  • Validate warranty and service contracts with the relevant agency and and make sure they are valid when ownership is transferred
  • If you are planning to sell the car soon, buy one with a good resale value. The two most popular cars in the UAE are black or white in colour and other colours are harder to sell

Why it pays to compare

A comparison of sending Dh20,000 from the UAE using two different routes at the same time - the first direct from a UAE bank to a bank in Germany, and the second from the same UAE bank via an online platform to Germany - found key differences in cost and speed. The transfers were both initiated on January 30.

Route 1: bank transfer

The UAE bank charged Dh152.25 for the Dh20,000 transfer. On top of that, their exchange rate margin added a difference of around Dh415, compared with the mid-market rate.

Total cost: Dh567.25 - around 2.9 per cent of the total amount

Total received: €4,670.30 

Route 2: online platform

The UAE bank’s charge for sending Dh20,000 to a UK dirham-denominated account was Dh2.10. The exchange rate margin cost was Dh60, plus a Dh12 fee.

Total cost: Dh74.10, around 0.4 per cent of the transaction

Total received: €4,756

The UAE bank transfer was far quicker – around two to three working days, while the online platform took around four to five days, but was considerably cheaper. In the online platform transfer, the funds were also exposed to currency risk during the period it took for them to arrive.

Is it worth it? We put cheesecake frap to the test.

The verdict from the nutritionists is damning. But does a cheesecake frappuccino taste good enough to merit the indulgence?

My advice is to only go there if you have unusually sweet tooth. I like my puddings, but this was a bit much even for me. The first hit is a winner, but it's downhill, slowly, from there. Each sip is a little less satisfying than the last, and maybe it was just all that sugar, but it isn't long before the rush is replaced by a creeping remorse. And half of the thing is still left.

The caramel version is far superior to the blueberry, too. If someone put a full caramel cheesecake through a liquidiser and scooped out the contents, it would probably taste something like this. Blueberry, on the other hand, has more of an artificial taste. It's like someone has tried to invent this drink in a lab, and while early results were promising, they're still in the testing phase. It isn't terrible, but something isn't quite right either.

So if you want an experience, go for a small, and opt for the caramel. But if you want a cheesecake, it's probably more satisfying, and not quite as unhealthy, to just order the real thing.
