Google Station, Google’s public WiFi service, has gone live in Nigeria. As it was done in four other countries—India, Indonesia, Mexico and Thailand—where the service has been launched, Google will partner with local service providers for infrastructure and locations while it offers a cloud-based platform and devices to provide and manage hot-spots. Google Station locations will include high footfall areas such as malls, airports and schools. Already live in four locations in Lagos, (Lekki Palms Mall, Ikeja City Mall, MMA2 & Unilag) the service will be expanded to 200 locations across five additional Nigerian cities—Port Harcourt, Abuja, Kaduna, Enugu, Ibadan—by the end of 2019. As users access the free service, they will also be boosting Google’s revenue. The company will monetize Google Station through local advertisers and share revenues with technical partners. The service will be an upgrade for many users. Google Station’s speed of 30 Mbps far exceeds the 1.86 Mbps average internet speed in Nigeria. Google is well aware of Nigeria’s internet speed limitations. This is good for Nigeria and will hopefully allow more Nigerians to access the Internet for work and play. More especially, it should empower small businesses to grow.
