Thanks to improving cellular architecture, high-speed data connectivity, and a steadily increasing number of public WiFi hotspots in many countries, internet access is often assumed to be a given.

The Web giant on Tuesday announced the launch of more than 60 public Google Station Wi-Fi hotspots across Mexico City and 44 other cities in the country.

Google Station access is completely free but carries advertising. It didn't remain relegated to train stations in India for long, though, expanding both to new non-train venues and coming to the nation of Indonesia. Locations include high-traffic points such as airports, shopping malls, and public transit stations, and Google by the end of the year Google aims to extend the network to over 100 locations.

For this first rollout of Station in Mexico, Google is partnering with ISP Sitwifi to convert existing hotspots. Google Station now boasts roughly 8 million users every month in India, and the company sees great potential for its growth in Mexico as well.

Google Station launched back in 2015, and its goal is to offer people Internet access that's fast, free, and reliable.

Mexico has made great strides in connectivity since a 2013-14 telecom reform meant to loosen the grip of billionaire Carlos Slim's America Movil, which has long dominated the market. She also added that Google saw Mexico as a good entry point for the product in Latin America.

Over 8 million people accessed the internet through 500 stations in India in the last month, Google said.
