One of the toughest things about traveling internationally is figuring out how to stay in touch with your family back home without racking up tons of roaming charges from your wireless provider. Google may finally have the answer. According to a Telegraph report, the tech giant has plans to develop a global network for Americans that's free of roaming charges.

“In a bid to create a global network that will cost the same to use for calls, texts, and data, irrespective of where the user is located, the search giant is mulling a wholesale access agreement that could help it debut in the US mobile market with its own network,” the report points out.

This isn't the first report indicating that Google is interested in becoming a wireless provider. Just last month, I told you about Google's plans to enter the domestic cell service industry.
