Hello readers
In this Article, I will be discussing how to find and connect to Google free Wi-Fi Station and browse flawlessly.

Surprisingly, Nigeria is the first Country in Africa and the fifth country in the world to get Google Wi-Fi Station service. Google launched their Free Wi-Fi Service (Google Wi-Fi Station) recently in Nigeria and since it started Nigerians have been enjoying its benefits by downloading and using the internet at a high-speed rate for free.

For this Wi-Fi service to work, Google partners with numerous local technology Institute to ensure the provision of the needed software and hardware to actualize the “Free Wi-Fi for all”. Some of these partners are Network providers, System Integrators, Large scale organizations, Fibre providers.

HOW TO LOCATE GOOGLE WI-FI STATION IN NIGERIA

Google Wi-Fi would be set up in places that attract large crowds daily like Markets, Airports, Sit-out Parks, Transport Parks (Bus & Railway), Public Schools / Universities, Large Malls etc.
In Nigeria, this Free Service is projected for 200 locations in 6 Cities (Lagos, Abuja, Port-Harcourt, Kaduna, Ibadan, and Enugu) these Cities were chosen due to their popularity and Google might decide to increase the list of Cities in the Nearest future.

HOW TO CONNECT TO THE GOOGLE WIFI

Once You find the Wi-Fi, tap connect and your device will automatically connect to the Wi-Fi without prompting for a password.
After connecting, you won't be able to browse with it until you Sign-In with a Valid Phone number.

For Android users, after connecting, open your notification panel and you will see a notification asking you to sign into the network.
Click on the notification and it will direct you to the sign-in portal where you will see the Partner’s name and Google’s Logo.
Click on continue and then put your mobile number (Make sure the sim card is Switched on because a code would be sent to the number to confirm that you are the owner of the Sim, Copy the code and type it in the space provided in the portal and that’s all you are connected.

Laptop and Computer users can also connect too. once connected to the Wi-Fi a pop-up notification would come up asking you to open your browser and finish the connection.
Click on the notification and your default internet browser will open up and redirect you to the login page.

Note: When connected to A device, the device won’t need phone number verification for three days (3) and after that, you will be asked to verify before using. A number can be used to register only 3 devices at a time (3 devices can simultaneously use 1 sim verification for 3 days).
The Wi-Fi comes in two types: Fast Mode and Basic Mode

FAST MODE WI-FI

Connecting to the Wi-Fi would automatically put the device in Fast Mode Wi-Fi and it allows users to surf and download at an amazing speed of 30Mb/Sec on all platforms (Android, iOS, Windows).
The only downside of this Fast Mode is that users are allowed to use its fast speed for 30 minutes which after that, you will be taken to the Basic Mode.

BASIC MODE WI-FI

Unlike the time-cap placed on the Fast Mode, when you are connected to the Basic Mode the download and surfing speed of the Wi-Fi will reduce drastically but the good side of this is that you will be allowed to use the Wi-Fi for an unlimited time, meaning that you would continue to browse and download for as long as you want.

The Google Wi-Fi station was launched lagos since late 2018 and this service is till active in some station in Lagos State .
