Google Brings Free WiFi to Mexico

Google Brings Free WiFi to Mexico

Google officials detailed an agreement to convert hotspots operated by Mexican internet service provider Sitwifi to Google Station, which allows its partners to easily introduce WiFi in public spaces.

Google said on March 13 that it will launch a network of free Wi-Fi hotspots across Mexico, part of the search giant's effort to improve connectivity in emerging markets and put its products in the hands of more users. Google says it'll first be rolling out its Station hotspots across 60 different venues in Mexico, including malls, airports, and public transit stations, but it hopes to expand this to over 100 locations by the end of 2018. The project eventually moved beyond train stations, and also expanded to Indonesia in August past year. Mexico has the third highest internet penetration in Latin American, the company said, but large data plans aren't as viable as they can be elsewhere. Google Station now boasts roughly 8 million users every month in India, and the company sees great potential for its growth in Mexico as well.

HSBC pay gap reveals men being paid twice as much as women
Of the 2,300 companies that have reported thus far, the financial services industry has revealed some of the biggest pay gaps . For example, last month, Barclays said that women in its investment bank division earn on average 48% less than men .

Between 2013 and 2016 the number of people in Mexico accessing the internet increased by about 20 million thanks to telecom reform created to wrest access from billionaire Carlos Slim's market-dominating America Movil. This challenge is exactly what Google Station aims to answer.

She also added that Google saw Mexico as a good entry point for the product in Latin America. It is now active in 45 cities across Mexico, including capital Mexico City.
