CK Hutchison, Google tie up on Europe virtual networks

CK Hutchison Holdings

HONG KONG -- CK Hutchison Holdings said Wednesday it will partner with Google to provide the latter's U.S. smartphone users with high speed, international wireless connectivity when visiting Europe.

Under the deal, the Hong Kong-based conglomerate will provide the additional connectivity to users of Project Fi, Google's mobile virtual network operator, through the internet giant's Nexus smartphones

Project Fi provides Nexus users with low-cost wireless data services through leased cellular networks of other carriers, including Sprint, the third-ranking mobile operator in the U.S. and a SoftBank Group affiliate.

CK Hutchison Holdings operates mobile carriers in Europe under the Three brand. Last year, the company established Hue, a new entity through which it aims to expand its MVNO support service.
