Taipei launches free public Wi-Fi


Taipei City Government has completed step one of its plan to introduce free public Wi-Fi across the city with the service currently being available in public areas such as libraries, MRT stations and hospitals. Eventually, the plan is to cover all areas, from streets to residential areas. For more information about the service and how you can take advantage of it, take a look at this link.

The Taipei city government has finished the first stage of introducing free public wi-fi throughout Taipei. As of now, the free wireless is limited to public areas such as the MRT, shopping areas, office areas, hospitals, and libraries. However, the network will be expanded to major streets and avenues next and finally city buses and residential areas thereafter.

To access the service, you’ll need to apply for an account, which you can do here. Tourists to the city can use their passports to register at any of the tourism centers across the city. The site also provides handy instructions on how to access the network.
