Wireless@SG is a wireless broadband program developed by IDA as part of its Next Generation National Infocomm Infrastructure initiative. It is run by three local wireless operators – iCELL Network, M1 and SingTel. Users can enjoy free, both indoor and outdoor seamless wireless broadband access with speeds of up to 1 Mbps at public areas.
You can get a speed boost of up to 1Mbps (from the previous 512Kbps) and come January next year, you will enjoy a seamless log-in process – a welcome improvement to the countless users who have had problems logging in on-site.
Launched in December 2006, Wireless@SG covers cafes, libraries and other public places and has jumpstarted the previously stagnant broadband scene in Singapore, leading to cheaper and more varied services in the past three years. There are now 7,500 Wireless@SG hotspots islandwide and 1.3 million subscribers.
