As an MVNO Google would buy access to Verizon’s network in areas where Google sells Google Fiber services and resell it as their own. The Information also speculates that Google could depend greatly on WiFi access points for the majority of the service with connectivity to Verizon towers only happening when Verizon service is unavailable, very similar to Republic Wireless' MVNO deal with Sprint.
Keep in mind that Google has already partnered with Starbucks to offer free WiFi plus is rumored to be working on a WiFi app that will help easily log you into public networks. One can speculate this is all a part of Google's wireless plans?
Google Fiber may only be in two markets at this time (currently in Provo, UT and Kansas City, MO), but Google has plans to expand Google Fiber and is exploring nine new markets as we speak.
