Three words: fast, free Wi-Fi.
Google Station, a platform that provides open, free, and high quality Wi-Fi hotspots to the public, is now available in over 400 sites across the country thanks to partnership between Google and Smart.
Initially, Google Station was only available in 50 sites including airports, train stations, and universities as part of Google’s Next Billion Users initiative to connect Filipinos to more opportunities through reliable internet access. To see its new locations, visit station.google.com/#map.
Since its launch, the free network has seen an average of one million active users. These users averaged 22 minutes per session several times a day.
“We remain committed to serving the Filipino community with fast, free and open Wi-Fi so more people can join the millions of Filipinos already using Google Station,” said K Suri, Director for Next Billion Users for Southeast Asia. “This is just the beginning. With our partnership with Smart, we aim to set up in more locations nationwide so Filipinos can connect to opportunities and benefit from the growing digital economy.”
