M1 offers free wireless broadband service at Parco Bugis Junction

Visitors to Parco Bugis Junction can now enjoy free surfing using the wireless broadband access (WBA) service with up to 1Mbps download speed provided by M1 at this popular shopping mall.
M1 had earlier in the month launched Singapore¡¯s first true island-wide broadband service, M1 Broadband, using its newly upgraded 3G network that is the first to offer High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA).
The free service at Parco Bugis Junction, which is available till 31 December 2007, showcases the deployment of broadband service using Mesh Wi-Fi in a campus like environment or location.
Unlike the normal Wi-Fi that is deployed for hot spots and WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network), the more sophisticated Mesh Wi-Fi covers a wider area. It also offers a cost-effective solution by using a series of Wi-Fi access points that are interconnected with one another by radio links.
"M1¡¯s WBA service at Parco Bugis Junction is a clear demonstration of how certain building owners, enterprises or campuses can effectively deploy broadband services using mesh-Wi-Fi. We are pleased to be able to offer the public the experience and benefits of free broadband access in a prominent commercial area with this project," said Neil Montefiore, Chief Executive Officer of M1.
M1, Singapore's most exciting and innovative mobile and IDD service provider, was launched in April 1997.
Since then, it has made significant inroads into the local mobile communications market, gaining considerable brand presence and market share. M1 aims to be the leader in personal voice, business and data communications, focusing on value, quality and customer service.
More information on M1 is available at www.m1.com.sg.
