Google Station, Google’s service that partners with telcos to provide free WiFi, will be shutting down soon

Currently, there are over 400 locations in the country powered by Google Stations, all of which are expected to shut down within the week. A foreign source from the Manila Bulletin stated that Google had not provided enough support to the platform.

As a result, partnered telcos are losing money with the service. He also added: “There is not enough advertising revenue to sustain the partnership with telcos.” Google Stations already in place will be rebranded and converted by their partner telcos to provide their own services.

The report also says that Google Stations in India, Indonesia, Thailand, Mexico, Nigeria, Brazil, and Vietnam will also shut down.
