Google Free Wi-Fi is illegal in Nigeria Says NCC
Google made it known that the Google Station will be made available in 200 locations in five cities across Nigeria by the end of 2019, thereby bringing Wi-Fi to millions of Nigerians at sites including markets, transport hubs, shopping malls, universities, and more.
However, the Nigerian Communication Commission NCC seems not to be pleased with the development as the organization has reported Google to the Federal government of evading the regulatory oversight in the expansion of Google Station across the country.
It was also reported that there are other several irregularities in the structure under which Google presently runs its free public Wi-Fi for which the Commission “NCC” requested it to provide information that will clarify certain issues that have cropped up in the course of trying to streamline its usage of Short Message Service (SMS) for user authentication.
The commission also claims that Google doesn’t own an Internet Service Provider (ISP) license in the country.
Well, I believe with all this hullabaloo it is clear that we all know where NCC is driving at but will this help the growth of the country and also will it encourage other future investors. Let’s know your view concerning that in the comment section.
