The wait is over, Google’s free wifi hotspot service has finally arrived Thailand after India, Indonesia and Mexico City.
Google Station is a Google service that allows partners to roll out WiFi hotspots in public places by providing software and offering advice on hardware to turn fibre connections into WiFi. This project was first launched in India two years ago and later expanded to Indonesia. In March, the free service was made available in Mexico City. And now it’s time for Thailand to enjoy serving internet for free.
For the first phase, Google Station is available in 10 areas across Bangkok and two other provinces.
-Hua Lamphong Railway Station
-Central World Shopping Center
-Central Rama 9
-Paseo Park Kanchanapisek
-Paseo Mall Ramkamhang
-The Season Mall, Phayathai
-Wang Krod Railway Community, Pichit Province
-Chiang Kan, Loey Province
How to access the service? When you are at one of those spots, turn on your wifi on your phone then look for wifi account called @FreeGoogleStation-CAT, then connect to that wifi account and that’s it. So it’s easy to connect but what about speed? How fast is it? Ben King, Head of Google Business said it is fast enough for you to check your email, chat with friends or even watching online HD video clips.
However, when compare to India which has more than 400 spots across the country, Thailand still have quite small number but in the future Google said they (and their partners like CAT Telecom) will expand wifi spot to major provinces and tourist destinations such as Khon Khaen, Chiang Mai.
