Google set to discontinue its free public WiFi initiative in 2020:

After close to 4 years of offering free internet access to those living in developing nations, Google has revealed plans to shut down its Station program. The initiative saw the search company provide free public WiFi at four hundred railway stations in India and over five thousand places across the globe, including South Africa and Vietnam.

Reports of the shutdown were in circulation last week and Google has finally come out to confirm this move.

Google’s Caesar Sengupta had this to say, “We are working with our partners to transition existing sites so they can remain useful resources for the community.”
