Amazon Reportedly Testing Its Own Wireless Network in Apple's Backyard
Amazon has branched out in many ways of late, and this may be its first ecosystem play in getting even more individuals connected to its services. If Amazon acted as an ISP or a portal, it could then control the experience. Google has obviously done likewise with its Project Loon efforts as well as Google Fiber, but this would be new ground for Amazon.
Of course, the company is a major player in the video streaming sector, and it clearly benefits from having more individuals connected to the Web. It's still unclear how exactly this would pan out, but we're impressed that such a thing is undergoing testing.
