• My Favourite Taiwan Tourist SIM



    Notice how I didn't say "best"... the fact of the matter is that of Taiwan's four national carriers—Chunghwa Telecom, FarEasTone, Taiwan Mobile and T Star—I've only ever used FarEastTone. And none of their SIM cards in my growing collection has ever let me down.

    If you're flying into Terminal 1 of Taoyuan International Airport you'll find counters for all four carriers just outside of immigration (to the right). But if you're flying into the yet-to-be-made-over Terminal 2 then you'll have to hunt down each one separately. I'm happy to save you that trouble: FarEastTone provides prepaid data SIMs charged by volume or by day, and you'll definitely want to choose the former because data is unlimited, and cheap! 5 days of service will set you back a mere $350 TWD, about $11 and change USD; my girlfriend and I got 15 full days for exactly $32.03 CAD each.



    Speeds, as you can see from my collection of tests above, were fine—maybe not as fast as peak 4G speeds on Bell in downtown Toronto, but perfectly usable. And because of the unlimited throughput I never once had to connect to hotel WiFi.

    So if there's a trip to Taiwan in your near future and you require a prepaid SIM then I think you'll be quite satisfied with FarEastTone. More on them and your other options at the links immediately below.

    Is WiFi calling reliable on AT&T?

    I don’t doubt your issues. I bought a higher end netgear router a few years back and that could be the reason why WiFi works good for me. it also doesn’t hurt that I have a 300 MB connection from...

    I really like Surfshark. It is convenient because it allows to have an unlimited number of devices on one account, as well as unlimited bandwidth!

    Why would there be? Bring more attention to an already very small amount of users? Go complain about it to Verizon? Nonsense

    So the Exalt with the outer screen just has those alarm clock/Pacman dots and that's all that it will let you show on the front screen?

    Can you elaborate on the stripped down Message+?
