无线上网的思考

接上文。

我的经验是,在英国,在马来西亚,到了有 Wi-Fi 的地方,通常就可以马上上网,大部分时候,连密码都不必输入。

来新加坡以前,我也以为在这个亚洲先进国里,一样那么方便。

在新加坡,购物中心里,是有 Wi-Fi 的,但是需要通过新加坡电讯局这一关。

我在网上搜寻了一番,读到了这一段:新加坡政府自2006年起,规定购买 SIM 卡必须登记使用者的个人资料,新加坡本国人需要出示身份证,外国人则出示护照。

Since 2006, Singapore government has made the prepaid SIM registration a mandatory requirement. This means the card must be registered under the name of the person who will be using it, in this case you. As a result, you will be required to produce your passport or Singapore ID at the time of buying the prepaid mobile card. Once registered, the card is ready for use immediately.

对电子世界采取严密的监控,有一种说法是,能够更容易对付恐怖主义。
