Finding a free Wi-Fi hotspot in Mexico is about to get a little easier, thanks to Google.

The premise behind Station is to improve access to high bandwidth services in areas where internet data plans might not be affordable, and thus users are reticent to surf the web.

Google's initial batch of Wi-Fi zones is scattered across the country, from the Ciudad Juarez airport at the US border to posh shopping centers in Mexico City.
