Earlier last year, Google launched “Free WiFi” known as Google Station at Google For Nigeria event held in Landmark Event Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The aim is to bring the internet to life for everyone by helping users connect to the Internet in such a way that supports their various hustles and helps them make a positive impact in their communities and the country at large.
Now, United Bank for Africa (UBA) has partnered with Google and 21st Century Technologies to provide free WiFi across 11 locations in Lagos State, Nigeria.
Google said it will roll out the initiative in 200 locations in five cities across Nigeria by the end of 2019.
This Google-powered initiative would allow customers access to internet connectivity within the 11 branches and its environs, thereby facilitating their day-to-day businesses and activities, while ensuring unhindered connectivity.
Am sure with all of this you are excited and eager to know the place where you can enjoy this free internet access. Well, here they are.

Juliet Ehimuan-Chiazor who is Google Nigeria’s Country Director noted that the institutions remained focused on providing internet services to users for free. In her words, she said;
With the help of our partners, we are offering high-quality internet access in heavily-trafficked areas like airports, markets, malls and bus stations throughout the country, especially in areas where there were no internet connections before.
Even with the amazing progress on expanding mobile internet, we are finding that public Wi-Fi remains a crucial step in getting free, high-quality internet to everyone.
