Taiwan has a healthy telecom market with many players.
And like many countries in East Asia, SIM cards and mobile data are inexpensive in Taiwan.
You can choose from six SIM cards: Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan Mobile, Far EasTone, T Star, GT Mobile & Ibon Mobile (Far EasTone MVNO), which you can buy in their stores.
I had a full year in Taiwan (March 2020 to March 2021).
And what makes Taiwan unique is that their tourist SIM cards offer truly unlimited data.
And as I was in the country for such a long time, I could test Taiwanese SIM cards like no other, with more than 100+ speed test results per mobile operator.
So, it has been almost two years since I was in Taiwan – where are the reviews?
I have yet to write them… yes…next level procrastination!
No – that is not the reason.
Taiwan had strict entry requirements, meaning barely anyone could visit the country.
Those who were already in Taiwan already had a SIM card.
And the Taiwanese would not look for reviews in English – they would read reviews from local reviewers.
Luckily, Taiwan will be opening up soon.
I visited 15 European countries in the first quarter of 2022, and I tested around 60 SIM cards there.
So after I clear up that backlog, I will get on my Taiwan SIM card reviews (unless the country opens up sooner – then I will get to them.
I will update them because the format is… well… I can do better nowadays, but they are still insightful reviews, I will say.
