Google’s Free Wifi services project has got good vibes for Nigerians! At the launch, it promises to provide a fast, reliable and available free Wifi services for all within her large network of users across 5 Cities and 200 locations between now and 2019 according to the company’s country director in Nigeria. Hopefully, this will be a revolutionary experience as it seems to be the best alternative to the problems associated with lower social media platform engagements due to slow internet, high cost of data among other factors.
The service is currently being enjoyed in Lagos in targeted locations like Ikeja City Mall, Computer Village, MMA2[Domestic Terminal], University of Lagos, GSM Plaza, The Land Mark Centre, The Palm Mall and the 21 Century Offices-HQ. Apart from Lagos, this free Wifi service is intended to spread to other regions like the FCT Abuja, Port-Harcourt, Ibadan, Enugu, Kaduna and possibly more than we expect in 2019 and beyond.
To achieve this, Google is partnering with 21st Century Technologies Nigeria’s biggest Fiber providers, Internet Service Providers, Network operators, and a host of others. This is an extensive and far reaching project as it is not just targeted at Nigeria alone; other countries like India, Mexico, Indonesia, and Thailand are included in this.

If you have dashed in to Lagos on a visit or that you even live there and have used this free Wifi service, you will notice that while trying to enter your URL or a user website address, you are first taken to a location other than where you will have preferred to land in and then you begin to see ads, then you are in again into where ever you wanted to be at first and at intervals you are here and there on the web!
