Suddenlink Communications, the internet communications company that was acquired by Google in 2015, announced today that it has reached an agreement to acquire an unspecified number of wireless devices and wireless broadband networks. 

The deal, announced by Google CEO Sundar Pichai in a blog post, will help the company develop more advanced technologies, and will create new ways to connect people in the world.

The deal, which is expected to close in the second quarter of 2019, is worth more than $2 billion and will allow Suddenlinks’ wireless network to become the dominant carrier in the US. 

“We’re very excited about the opportunity to join forces with Google to bring innovation and connectivity to millions of people around the world,” said SuddenLink CEO and co-founder John McAfee.

“Suddenlinks technology has been the key to our success over the past decade.

We’ve grown from a small startup to a global leader in communications and services. 

SuddenLink’s technology allows people to make more personal connections with each other, improve their health, save money, and connect with loved ones.” 

“Google has an incredible history of developing technologies that make life easier and more fun, and the Sudden link acquisition gives us an incredible opportunity to accelerate this momentum,” said Sundar Patel, president of Google Ventures.

“We’ve been working together to develop new technologies that will enable people to communicate more, save more, and live more easily, and we’re very grateful to the many partners who have supported us over the years.” 

Google has been working with Sudden Links on some of its most recent technologies, including VoIP, mobile apps, and video services.

Google has also invested in several startups, including Moxie, which provides a way for people to access healthcare data and search for healthcare information. 

Earlier this year, Google partnered with the nonprofit Sanger Institute to develop Sudden Link’s mobile app. 

Moxie is currently in beta and Sanger said it is “currently in talks with Moxies development team to develop the next version of Moxiemaker.” 

Sanger said in a press release that Moxia will be “available for both Android and iOS devices” and that it will “enable a wider range of people to receive, store, and access healthcare information and healthcare services.” 

The announcement of this transaction comes just days after SuddenLinks announced that it had completed the purchase of its wireless network. 

In the blog post today, McAfee said that the purchase “allows Sudden to take the lead in developing new ways of connecting people in more remote areas and communities.” 

As part of the acquisition, Sudden links will be renamed as Sudden Communications, and McAfee will become Sudden. 

According to McAfee, the purchase also will allow Google to “continue to develop technologies that can make life simpler and easier for people and businesses in rural areas.” 

McAfee said the deal with Google also “allows us to continue to expand the use of mobile data, with Sanger’s technology and Google’s own technology.” 

According, Google will provide additional “critical support” to Sudden’s business, and Sudden will “continue its expansion in the United States.” 

In addition to the wireless networks and wireless services, Google has been buying technology and services from a number of other companies in recent years. 

Last year, it acquired the data communications startup Nextel and the mobile messaging app Whisper. 

Then, in 2018, Google purchased data communications company Movidius and the messaging app Telegram. 

And last month, it purchased data communication startup Mycelia for $1.4 billion.
