You Can Access Free Google Wi-Fi Services in These 6 Locations in Lagos

A few months ago, we brought you the good news that Google is bringing free Wi-Fi services to locations in Nigeria.

Google has now partnered with Nigerian fibre cable network, 21st Century, to provide its public Wi-Fi service, Google Station, in six places in the commercial capital, Lagos, including the local airport.

Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor, Google Country Director, said the free Wi-Fi service will be extended to 200 locations in five cities across Nigeria by the end of 2019.

The other locations across five additional cities are Port Harcourt, Abuja, Kaduna, Enugu, Ibadan.

She revealed this at the second Google for Nigeria event, at the Landmark event centre in Lagos.

The Google Free Wi-Fi is now available in these 6 locations:

With this offer, Google is targeting the poor internet infrastructure in Nigeria which is a major challenge for businesses and over 190 million citizens. Google Station’s speed of 30 megabytes per second (Mbps) is far above Nigeria’s average internet speed of 1.86 Mbps.
