I can think of a few reasons: Verifying the identity of Wi-fi users, in case a court subpoena comes in requesting information about a certain user. It's not a bullet-proof method (many countries offer anonymous sim-cards), but it's probably good enough in most cases. Some countries may also ban fully anonymous Wi-fi (such as Germany or Turkey). Making sure ...

For Singapore, it is because of the law---they want to be able to track you down if necessary. It is the same even when you are trying to buy a S$15 prepaid phone card---you need to give your identification number (either your National Registration Identification Card number or some other number if you're a foreigner) and the seller needs to record it down. ...

I can talk about the wifi coverage there. What I've been doing recently to determine speed of connections is to use Instabridge (not my app) - a free app for Android, that does two very important things: Shows where open wifi is (including password-protected ones which have been crowd-sourced - e.g. a kind soul has added his home wifi to the list).

Update 13 Sep 2014. It took one hour twenty minutes to get access to Boingo when the airport was less than half full. Boingo is a joke and the sooner Emirates ditch their contract the better. I have used DXB for 10 years and it has always worked OK. Since Boingo took over the operation it is crap.
