Taipei2016Dec: Oasis from the data desert – relief for the data deprived traveler touching down in Taipei at Taoyuan International Airport.

The first thing you see upon emerging from the gates (even before the customs and the baggage) are these 3 local telcos vying for your business.

All offer unlimited prepaid data SIM cards for the duration of your stay in Taiwan, with some credits for voice calls.

I bought a 10-day card for NT$450 (S$20) that includes NT$100 voice credit.

Alternatively, you can also rent a WiFi Router with unlimited data for NT$159 (S$5) per day.
