Google Is Bringing Free Wi-Fi To 50 Locations In The Philippines



Google has announced at its on going "Google for Philippines" conference that it will bring its free Wi-Fi hotspot to the Philippines as part of the Google Station program.

Google Station is a program that the Internet giant came up with to serve free Internet in developing countries via Wi-Fi to areas such as railway stations, bus stations, hospitals, college campuses, etc. that have heavy traffic.


According to the global director for Google's Next Billion Users initiative, Mahesh Bhalerao, Google plans to roll out about 50 hotspot locations by the end of February, and hope to add more locations in 2019.
To make available the free Wi-Fi service, Google has partnered with Smart and PDLT to render the service. Google will serve ads to users making use of the free Wi-Fi service. However, users will get 30-minutes of free Internet service after which they will have to sign in again. For the ads, Google has announced Unilever as their first ad partner.

The Google Station program first began in India in 2016, and gradually spread to places like Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, and Thailand. The Philippines will be the sixth country the service is being launched in.
