Visitors to Singapore who are roaming on the SingTel mobile network can use SingTel’s *186 service to request a temporary user ID and password to access their wi-fi network.

Just dial *186 on a mobile phones and receive a SMS with a user ID and password. These are valid until midnight on the same day.

With this user ID and password users can then access the internet on hot spots provided by SingTel. There is a one-time charge of 20.8 Singapore cents for each *186 request. The usage charge is 36.4 Singapore cents per minute for Internet access at the wireless surf zones. The charges will be included in the visitors’ mobile phone bill under the international roaming billing agreement between SingTel and the overseas mobile phone operator.

SingTel launched Outdoor Wireless Surf in September last year. Currently, it has more than 170 wireless surf zones in locations such as Starbucks, Burger King, Delifrance outlets, community and country clubs, hotels, hospitals and libraries.
