Worried about not being able to upload to Facebook or Twitter your photos of the New Year's fireworks when the clock strikes 12 in the Marina Bay area?

The three telcos have assured that they are boosting their mobile networks in the area for today's New Year's Eve countdown celebrations.

SingTel said it is boosting capacity to allow more people to connect to its 3G and 4G mobile networks at the Promontory@Marina Bay and the Marina Bay Sands Mist Walk walkway for the New Year's Eve countdown celebrations today.

The telco has deployed a mobile base station located near Marina Bay City Gallery, since Monday for this. Called Cellular On Wheels, the van has a base station that can allow 500 more 3G and 4G SingTel subscribers to connect to the telco's network within a 200m radius.
