Wireless@SG is a wireless broadband programme that aims to extend broadband access beyond homes, schools and offices to public places. Users can enjoy free, both indoor and outdoor seamless wireless broadband access with speeds of up to 2 Mbps at public areas. This allows users to access media-rich and interactive websites as well as use bandwidth-intensive applications such as video streaming.
This wireless broadband network targets users that are “on the move" - people who require wireless broadband access while away from their homes, schools and offices. These include students, tourists, business travellers and enterprise users such as insurance agents and real estate agents who use widely-available and wireless-enabled devices such as notebook PCs and smartphones. Once connected, users will be able to access all Internet-based services e.g. online gaming, web surfing, instant messaging, VoIP and email.
In April 2013, the Next Phase of the Wireless@SG programme was launched to improve user experience and drive the adoption of innovative consumer and enterprise services. Enhancements to the network include:
• Progressively higher access speed of up to 2mbps
• Easier login to the network through SIM-based authentication for mobile devices from April 2014 onwards,
• innovative services, such as targeted advertising, office communication suite and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
