Google LLC, an American multinational technology company, on Thursday, July 26, launched Google Station, a service to provide free high quality, high-speed Wifi hotspots in Nigeria, West Africa.
The multinational technology company started the program in partnership with 21st Century to make the internet more easily accessible to Nigerians.
Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor, Google Nigeria country director, said: “Google Station will be rolling out in 200 locations in five cities across Nigeria by the end of 2019, bringing Wi-Fi to millions of people”.
She added that the “Sites include markets, transport hubs, shopping malls, universities, and more. Nigeria is the fifth country to get Google Station, after India, Indonesia, Thailand and Mexico.”
The company revealed on Thursday that Google Station is now live at the domestic wing of the Murtala Mohammed Airport (MMA) 2, Lekki, Computer Village, The Palms, Lemmings, University of Lagos, and the Landmark event centre with more locations to come.
ALEDEH reports that the development is coming after Google launched ‘Job search’ in South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya in March.
With the ‘Job search’, the multinational technology company is making search more powerful for ordinary Africans and is now rolling out ‘Job search’ in twenty-nine (29) new countries.
Google is also launching a search experience that allows users to explore health conditions based on symptoms, as well as recipe search for anyone who needs a little food inspiration in Nigeria.
