Background:
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.
