Cell Phones and SIM Cards
Prepaid SIM cards are easily accessible in Taiwan for a relatively low startup cost. SIM cards can be purchased in city shops, at the airport, or in advance online with a simple pickup at the airport. Using an unlimited data SIM is safer and more secure than connecting to public WiFi.
Taiwanese citizens have been able to log onto iTaiwan, the island's free Wi-Fi network. Taiwan is one of the first places in the world to offer free Wi-Fi on a mass scale.
