Singapore's freshly revamped wireless network got off to a good start yesterday, attracting more users than it had last year.

The improved Wireless@SG hosted 60,000 mobile users on its first day, with the help of a new log-in feature that identifies users by their SIM cards.

In comparison, the free public network had only up to 10,000 daily users on average in the last three months of 2013. There are eight million mobile phone lines here.

"We are heartened by the excellent response to the revamped network that enables users to connect seamlessly to Singapore's biggest free public Wi-Fi network," said a spokesman for the Infocomm Development Authority.
