    Yup. Bring my notebook out everytime.. But they starting charging already..

    I personally feel that Singtel is better than Blue engine, in terms of places where the services rendered and the setup is such a breeze compared to blue engine.

    I used to use the singtel hotspots, at least until 20th or something last month.

    Singtel uses a web gateway to verify your account details/know which account to bill, so mac and whatver is not a problem assuming that the mac is correctly set up to accept 802.11b networks.

    Check out their rates here:

    Btw, from their FAQ :

    Can I connect using a Macintosh computer?

    Generally, PDAs that are wireless enabled based on IEEE802.11b standard, can be used at the Wireless Surf Zones. However, for any technical support, please contact your PDA vendor.
    Personally, I wouldn't mind using free services (blue engine? confirm free?) as compared to paying singtel's rather excessive rates - $12.36 per hour! I'd rather use GPRS.

    If they wanna charge, I'd rather they charge by volume (i.e. # MB) instead of time. Most of the time spent surfing at such locations is reading and idling with no data transferred.
