Amazon may be expanding its business range into the wireless network industry.

Amazon may be expanding its business range into the wireless network industry.

According to sources who wished to remain unidentified, the giant online retailer was spotted in Cupertino testing a new wireless network that would reportedly allow customers to connect to the Internet.

Interestingly, giant satellite voice and data provider, Globestar, is said to be involved in the test, providing Amazon with its spectrum. Both Amazon and Globestar denied to comment on the report.

Globestar is already seeking approval from the FCC to use its satellite spectrums on land. Bloomberg says that the company already met with the FCC in June, and that a decision could follow in a few months time. Of course, if granted by the FCC, Globestar will push its plans of sharing its service with partners, which could include Amazon.

The latter has a special laboratory in Cupertino called Lab126. The facility is said to be the place where Kindle devices are made. The report is interesting. If true, this could be Amazon's most ambitious venture yet.
