Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA), has just announced that in mid-2014, it will be implementing a trial for free WiFi at 28 Singapore Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) stations.
According to Channel News Asia, the trial is implemented as part of the Land Transport Master Plan initiatives to provide better service on the public transport network.
The 28 Singapore MRT Stations include all the North East Line platforms, as well as “12 other stations with high commuter usage”, namely, Jurong East, Raffles Place, City Hall, Dhoby Ghaut, Bishan, Serangoon, Buona Vista, Outram Park, Paya Lebar, Orchard, Choa Chu Kang and Harbourfront.
Here are all the MRT stations with upcoming free WiFi.
A quick skim at the MRT stations with free WiFi shows that they are all MRT Interchange Stations. Internet access will be made available at speeds up to 2 Mbps.
We previously wrote about this news too, and how the Singapore netizen reacted to it.
Do you think this is a good move by the Singapore government? Or should the money be spent somewhere else?
