Taiwan Travel Tip: Data in Taiwan

This is just a micro article while I continue my travels. Finding WiFi has been frustrating enough for me, that I figured someone else may go through the same thing.

Tip 1: Don’t get an EGG/WiFi device
This is a waste of money, and I couldn’t even get mine to work properly. It was around 6 USD a day, which was about 30 down the drain for the first week.
Instead, go to 7-11 and pick up a SIM card.
This made my life so much easier, and the staff at both locations where I purchased a card and recharged it were very helpful. It cost 350 TWD, which is about 10.50 USD at the moment.

Tip 2: Make sure you change the APN in your network settings.
This was a minor hastle, but it caused me a few hours of grief. Go under Settings>More Networks>Mobile Networks>Access Point Names. Select the name indicated on your SIM card’s information packet.

Boom. You’re done. Hope that helps!
