Google has announced the introduction of its 'Google Station' public Wi-Fi hotspots platform in Mexico, the first Latin America country to receive the service and the third globally, after India and Indonesia. The service is available in over 60 "high-traffic" venues in 44 Mexican cities, including airports, shopping malls and public transit stations, with the company planning to reach over 100 locations before the end of the year.
