Hence Google will make available free Wi-Fi facilities in about 200 sites in Lagos and five other states in Nigeria between now to year 2019
Has reported 10 million Nigerians, including Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are expected to benefit immensely from this project. The other states are Kaduna; Port Harcourt (Rivers state); Ibadan (Oyo state); Enugu and Abuja.
