Kuala Lumpur Mandates WiFi for All Restaurants and Bars

A new law passed in Malaysia's largest city, Kuala Lumpur, this month will require all food and beverage outlets to provide wireless internet access to customers by April of this year. The law makes WiFi access for customers a requirement for food operators when applying for a new license for a restaurant or renewing an existing license. Cafes, pubs, bars and club lounges are also required to provide WiFi services, the mayor of Kuala Lumpur, Tan Sri Fuad Ismail, was quoted as saying to a Malaysian newspaper recently.

Many, if not most, venues in the US with free "Wi-Fi" require you use a WEB browser to login or click "agree". This makes it difficult to use devices for connectivity.

Does anyone know if the mandate will require "just connected" access or will there be such "agree" screens?
