Singapore is helping blaze the trail in the free public wifi movement, their Wireless@SG Initiative that intends to offer wifi access throughout the entire island projected for completion by the end of 2008. But until then, Singaporeans can enjoy free wifi on their bus commutes too, thanks to a program recently rolled out by Nokia. The world’s largest manufacturer of mobile phones has brought free, unlimited wifi onto 12 buses, utilizing the existing cellular HSDPA service. Unlike Wireless@SG, users don’t have to fuss with any registration or sign-up – they just have to sign a terms of agreement and they’re set. Users don’t even need a HSDPA-enabled phone. After a review in a few months, Nokia will decide whether or not to expand the program within Singapore and abroad.
