The government’s free Wi-Fi service (home.singtel.com/wirelessSG/) was launched in 2006 and is available in high-traffic areas all over the island – think shopping malls, cafés, restaurants, public libraries, commercial buildings – and wherever you’re most likely to be updating your Facebook and Twitter accounts. To date, there are more than 800 hotspots. If you happen to be in the range of one, a registration prompt would pop up and a password would be sent to you via SMS.
Users without a local number simply have to choose SingTel as a service provider and dial *186.
Alternatively, drop by any information counter at Changi Airport, where you’ll be given a temporary account.
Wireless@SG is a free wireless broadband programme developed by IDA, Singapore as part of its Next Generation National Infocomm Infrastructure initiative. Visitors can enjoy free wireless broadband access with top speeds of up to 1 Mbps at certain public areas in Singapore.
In Feb 2010, a few enhancements to the Wireless@SG network were launched. Seamless and Secure Access (SSA) was introduced to allow visitors to more easily engage to Wireless@SG services. SSA is especially beneficial for visitors who access Wireless@SG using mobile handheld devices such as iPhone, iPad and Android Devices, and it enhances the usage applications such as e-mail and VoIP over the Wireless@SG network.
The Wireless@SG Connect application was launched to allow users to easily access and enjoy a variety of Wireless@SG applications and services. With Wireless@SG Connect, users can receive relevant information, find nearest hotspots and receive the latest Wireless@SG updates. You could search the App from Apple’s Store or Android’s Market Place.
The operators are also providing location information from Wireless@SG through a Centralized Location-based Engine (CLBE) to enable developers to create new, location-sensing mobile applications.
Wireless@SG is powered by the network of 3 wireless operators in Singapore: iCELL, M1 and SingTel. It will be provided free till 31 March 2013.
