Simplify sign-in for Wireless@SG

It is heartening to hear that the Infocomm Development
Authority of Singapore (IDA) is doubling the bandwidth for the
Wireless@SG service.

I like to ask IDA to address another troublesome feature of
the current service. Currently, each provider uses its own
method to sign-in to the service. This is difficult, especially on 
a mobile phone. 

The workaround of downloading special script is also 
quite troublesome and frustrating.

I urge the IDA to provide a common sign in that can 
be used by all users, which does not have to depend on
the interface adopted by each provider.After sign-in, the 
user can be given an standard identification token to be 
passed to the hotspot provider

Let us make Wireless@SG really easy to use and put
Singapore in the frontline of innovation.
