Taipei, Aug. 6 (CNA) International visitors to Taiwan can now enjoy wireless Internet access by applying for an account through the iTaiwan online registration system for foreign visitors, and it takes only one minute to register, a spokesperson for the National Development Council said on Thursday.
Since the government rolled out the wireless service in 2011, more than 100 million people have registered, the spokesperson said.
Despite starting life as a service providing free basic WiFi access in certain indoor public areas at government agencies, the system has since integrated the resources of 13 universities and Taipei City government. It recently coordinated with the Tourism Bureau and the Ministry of the Interior to streamline the registration process for foreign visitors. [FULL STORY]
