Earlier today, Google Indonesia officially launched the free WiFi program entitled Google Station that will be implemented on the islands of Java and Bali.
The announcement was made by Google Indonesia’s Managing Director, Tony Kausgen, in the Google for Indonesia 2017 event (#Google4ID) at Ciputra World Theater, Kuningan, Jakarta.
“It has been a full year with Google and Indonesia, and so it is time to launch Google ala Indonesia,” Kausgen said, a keynote speaker at the event that was attended by 1500 attendees, as quoted by Tribun.
Tony added that for the first phase, Google Station will only be accessed in several big cities across Java and Bali. “Other cities will follow soon,” he said without mentioning a specific time period.
Google Station will offer free internet access in city centres. “You will be able access internet on soccer fields, main streets in your city, anywhere.” For this project, Google has collaborated with network infrastructure provider, CBN, and operator Fiberstars as the vendor for the public WiFi.
Other than Google Station, Kausgen also introduced two other priority programs, which are products and web developing that are tailor-made for high-school and college students.
