Taiwan SIM Card Reviews (Taiwanese)

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.

For now, you can read my GT Mobile and Ibon Mobile reviews.

I will update them because the format is… well… I can do better nowadays, but they are still insightful reviews, I will say.
