Hey there,

I'll be moving to Singapore next week and was wondering where in the city is there free wi-fi, if any? Just wanted to know about places to take my macbook to chill and browse the net.

Thanks

At least SingTel has an option available:

However, there are plenty of cafés around that offer wireless Internet connection for small money.

There's also free wifi in every McDonalds outlet in Singapore. Most have power plugs too. From next year I think there will be free wifi all over the island. Coal were you the one who emailed me a couple of months back?? Happy moving!

Yes, did you ever get my email? I'll be moving in a week. I'm so excited!

But will it be free island-wide?

They like a man who knows how to use his laptop.

Seriously Coal, Singapore has some of the hottest looking broads out there. Quit checking out MySpace, stop playing Everquest, quit browsing NonAv on A.net, and meet some of these broads.

Quoting channelnewsasia.com:
So, from January 2007, it will be rolling out wireless broadband Internet in all public spaces, called Wireless@SG, for free, for the first two years.

Premium and higher access speeds will also be immediately available - but this will come at a fee.

"Thereafter, access is expected to remain highly affordable. So, with just your laptop or PDA, you can enjoy high speed connection to the Internet, send out instant messages and check emails and even make VOIP (voice-over-IP) calls," said Mr Lee.

Singaporeans will be able to surf all over downtown, major town centres, recreational areas like East Coast Park, and maybe even at libraries and fast food outlets.

Three operators - iCELL network, QMax Communications and SingTel - have been appointed to do this.

They will carve out the island into three areas, and complete their deployment by end-September next year.

Thanks!

Sadly no. I've walked through it and it looks quite nice. The only issue I see with it is the ability to get out your seat and crawl over your sleeping seatmate if you had the window. Other than that it looked quite nice.

I'd agree.. I've always managed to come accross quite a few cuties when ever I have been there.

I've flown QF biz domestically a few times and it's fair reasonable. Having said that, I've only ever flown QF Biz.

Thanks. What a/c? I believe my routing for the trip is BA on the MIA-LHR sector and QF on the LHR-SIN sector.
