SINGAPORE - Uploading selfies and videos at Sentosa will now be easier with the introduction of four Wireless@SG Wi-Fi hotspots on the island resort.

Located at popular areas - Beach Station , Imbiah Lookout, The Port of Lost Wonder, and Mount Faber Leisure Group's (MFLG) facilities - visitors can enjoy download speeds of up to 2Mbps at the Wireless@SG hotspots.

The one-year Wi-Fi service trial is a partnership between Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) and M1 Limited (M1).

SDC said in a statement on Tuesday that it will study the take-up rate and usage patterns at the four hotspots during the trial period, before proceeding with roll-out plans in the subsequent phases of the initiative as necessitated by demand.

These could include extending coverage progressively to more locations island-wide, or raising surfing speeds up where appropriate.

The Wi-Fi service on Sentosa Island is currently one of the largest free outdoor Wi-Fi sites in Singapore.

The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) said that an approximate 20,000 to 40,000 users accessing the free Wi-Fi daily since the Wireless@SG rollout in Sentosa on Aug 11.

Mr Khoong Hock Yun, IDA Assistant Chief Executive, Development Group added: "IDA, with the support of Wireless@SG operators and venue owners, will continue to roll out more hotspots progressively."

Users on iOS (5.0 and above), Android (4.0 and above), Windows Phone 8.1 and BlackBerry (OS10) devices, will be able to get connected easily through the EAP-SIM (Extensible Authentication Protocol-Subscriber Identity Module) automatic login feature.
