Since one of the Singaporean government’s main goals is to offer great service to its citizens, they make a conscious effort to widen the scope of free WiFi in Singapore. In an effort to fulfill this goal, the government is ensuring that by the end of the year 2015, free wireless Internet connection will soon be available in all North East Line or NEL platforms. In fact, most of Singapore is armed with free and fast WiFi connection. You just have to register and make an account- it’s entirely free.
