I wish they stop wireless@sg
I’m not joking. This is not another sarcastic blog entry by my evil twin brother. I really wish they would stop wireless@sg. The quality of this free service is getting from bad to worst. I used wireless@sg 3 times this week. For 2 occasions, I was able to connect to the network but couldn’t load the login page. For the other occasion, I was able to login to internet but keep getting disconnected every 5 to 10 minutes. Wireless@sg is just too fustrating to use. It is totally not reliable at all. Someone asked me what do I expect from a free service. I guess we can't really expect too much. Yes, it is a free service. But what is the point of being free when the service is unusable? I rather IDA stop this whole wireless@sg project. Revert all the hotspot back to the paying model that we had in the past. At least the wireless hotspot are more reliable back then. I rather pay than put up with this useless thing.
I was a paying customer for wireless hotspot before wireless@sg was here. At a small fee of $10 per month, I never have to worry if the network is available or not. The network is reliable and I don’t remember any occasion when I couldn’t logon to internet. Now that all the paying hotspot has been converted to wireless@sg, you can’t even pay to get a reliable hotspot. Yes, they do provide premium account where you pay to surf at faster speed. But how do you surf at faster speed when you can’t even load the login page? I was a paying customer for wireless@sg premium service for the first few months when it was launched until I was so fed up and decide to cancel the service. It just isn’t worth paying for a network that is unreliable.
I guess I should really go apply for M1 mobile broadband. I cannot afford to have unreliable network if I want to work on the move in the future. At least M1 mobile broadband is more reliable than wireless@sg.
Oh, btw, advance happy birthday to wireless@sg. I still remember the media hoo-ha one year ago when you are born. The media is still saying good things about you. I guess either they never tried using you or they are still in denial. I’m totally disappointed with wireless@sg. And I'm not the only person complaining about it. Saw several people complaining about wireless@sg too. Most of them have switched to M1 mobile broadband.
IDA: Look, if your great wireless@sg is so good, WHY would anyone still want to apply for M1 mobile broadband? Think about it.
