Free WiFi in Singapore

Hunting for the perfect public place with free wifi where I can sit down and work with my laptop, tablet and smartphone. Here’s where I found so far. 

  • MacDonalds at Singapura Plaza | free wifi by Capialand | very fast | 1 hour only or unlimited for Capitastar member 
  • StarHub Green  Canteen @ Ubi | Quite fast at off peak about 3 to 4 pm | Could watch a YouTube video smoothly | Wireless@SGx 
  • SAFRA at Punggol | very fast | sign in to “Pgl” | not accessible in every part of the club 
  • Starbucks Coffee at Waterway Point | Y5ZONE at Starbucks | can hardly log in during peak hours (dinner time)… Many days later still no luck. 
  • Coffee Bean at Waterway Point | Free Wifi @ CBTL 1   
  • Pizza Hut at Waterway Point | wireless@sgx   
  • KFC WATERWAY POINT PUNGGOL | KFC free Wifi | slow but stable | no time limit | just get a S$4 Snacker – wing, fries and Pepsi     
  • Not wifi | just a reference test | Rochor MRT station outside | M1 4G data | Impressive!   
  • Not wifi | just a reference test | Inside MRT along Near Potong Pasir Station | 8 April 2016 | NOT wifi BUT M1 4G | just to make a comparison | better than free wifi but expensive   
  • Sengkang MRT station | 8 April 2016 | wireless@SGx | very slow | nearly useless, especially when you are going to ride or riding the train   
  • Sengkang Singhealth Polyclinic | 8 April 2016 | wireless@SGx | very smooth | videos load quick on FB iPhone | no laptop to test | strong signal | great only while waiting for Doctor appointment  | not available in CC just next door  
  • Funan Centre – KFC | No restrictions | Strong Signal | nice aircon | good music | comfortable seating | no power | sluggish on the laptop | videos struggle | Affordable F&B – S$4 for fries, wing, and Pepsi. Updated 5 April 2016.

I use OOKLA Speedtest app on iPhone to measure.

There is no truly free wifi place, is there? I had to pay for something in order to sit at the spot. 

Where’s your favourite free wifi spot in Singapore? Why?

How to Stop the Habit of Procrastination with Procraster App

Procraster App Review

Procraster App Review

Every start of a new year makes me think of the things I should have done last year.

Then I will list the things to do again and find a way to push myself to take action.

I tried many productivity methods and software, but still end up procrastinating.

The methods work for a short while, then life overtakes and overwhelms you.

This year (2016), I found an app that has been working well so far (3 weeks).

It’s an iPhone app called Procraster. Their slogan: “Stop running. Start Doing”.

It has got practical features but ONE stood out that I have not seen in other apps.

It helps you to decide what to do right now after typing in all my projects and tasks.

We procrastinate or never get started because everything on the list is important.

Procraster will look through your long list and decide for you based on an algorithm.

Procraster is more than a hybrid of Getting Things Done and Pomodoro Technique.

Check back with me a few months down the road to see if I am still at it.  🙂

20 February 2016 Update: Stopped using Procraster. Switched back to Google calendar. Why? Works on iPhone, Mac and PC.  Thanks Procraster for the lessons on preventing procrastination.
