    It could be a very difficult process for foreign travellers coming into Taiwan: getting until now a sim card in a shop was only possible by showing two proofs of identity. Or to ask a friendly local to buy it for you.

    But this is soon to be over: tourists will now be able to connect to the internet all over Taiwan, free of charge. The Executive Yuan (Cabinet) and its subordinate agencies, together with local governments, have set up about 4,400 “iTaiwan” WiFi hotspots at major tourist spots, transportation hubs, cultural establishments, and government offices all over the island.

    This is also good news because short term Internet plans for wireless devices were very expensive... crazy expensive. I applaud this change!
