Free Internet: McDonald’s, PSA

Located at: #01-25 PSA Building

I honestly thought this was part of ARC

You can see McDonald’s from ARC’s directory… But the address above came from McDonald’s website.

So you connect to their WiFi.

Then on your browser, Ronald (McDonald) will need additional information which includes your name, email address, birth year and month, sex and your mobile phone number (you will receive a one time password through SMS)

It was so slow, I made me rethink if I was in Singapore…

Ok… It isn’t that bad, it’s free and it works… Doesn’t even require you to buy anything from their shop.

If you’re a tourist and you’re looking for free WiFi to send a message someone… You can have coffee here (or stay near where you can get their signal) then send your message…
