Eight years ago, I wrote about the use of Wireless@SGx being less than optimal some years ago.
I must acknowledge that there has been efforts to improve the access (and speeds) to the extent that earlier this week, I was able to use a wireless@sgx hotspot to be on two conference calles using bluejeans.com and zoom.info. It worked very well that for the two hours I was on, there was hardly an issue.
I tweeted about this and kudos must be sent to those who have laboured to make this work well.
The one thing I would want the Wireless@SG people to do is to provide a full(er) set of instructions for access including Linux environments (Android is Linux after all).
I am including a part of my 2010 post here for the configuration aspects (on a Fedora desktop):
The information is trivial. This is all you need to do:- Network SSID: Wireless@SGx - Security: WPA Enterprise - EAP Type: PEAP - Sub Type: PEAPv0/MSCHAPv2
and then put in your Wireless@SG username@domain and password. I could not remember my iCell id (I have not used it for a long time) so I created a new one – firstname.lastname@example.org. They needed me to provide my cellphone number to SMS the password. Why do they not provide a web site to retrieve the password?
I had to recreate a new ID (it appears that iCell is no longer a provider) and apart from that, everything else is the same.
Thank you for using our tax dollars well, IMDA.
