Arriving, departing or connecting through Singapore's Changi airport? There's free wireless Internet on offer throughout Terminals 1, 2 and 3 through the [email protected] service.
The trick is that you'll need to register because of Singapore's Internet laws. But it's hardly onerous, especially if you have a longer connection.
Just head to one of the airport information counters, hand over your passport and you'll be given a 48-hour pass with login details. If you're passing back through the airport within that 48-hour limit, your details will still be valid; if not, you'll need to re-register.
(StarHub's mobile subscribers -- and anyone else with a [email protected] account, including iCell, Singtel or Qmax/M1Net -- have access with their existing username and password.)
The free network is speed-capped at 512Kbps -- relatively slow, but workable and by no means as glacial as the speeds we found at the Qantas/British Airways lounge earlier this year.
Visit StarHub's [email protected] at Changi Airport page for more information, and for technical support contact details.
