Stay Connected in Taiwan with i-Wifi Portal by Hi-Power!
Whenever I started to plan for a trip, the first thing that I ever search on the internet is about Data Connection within the country that I’m going to travel to!
Who can live without internet? Well, at least NOT Me. 😀
Phone Data Simcard or Portable Wifi?
Always the question. I used to buy phone data simcard when I traveled to Taiwan 5 years back, there’s nothing wrong with data simcard but it cost quite a bit to buy a simcard that provides enough data for long stay such as 10 days or more.
Only NTD$100 per day!
Imagine if you’re traveling in a group, you can split the cost evenly up to 10 people! It will only cost NTD$10 per day per person that is about RM 1.30 only!
Easy to Collect and Return!
Once you’re booking is done, you will receive a QR Code or Booking No. or even with your Order Name, you will be able to make your collection.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re in Terminal 1 or Terminal 2, there’s this Wifi router Pickup kiosk where you can pick up your wifi portal and return at the same kiosk.
How’s the coverage and connection?
The coverage is over Taiwan but of course if you’re in a super rural area, the connection may be a bit slow or when you’re underground, the connection may get affected as well just like your mobile phone.
But overall if you’re travelling within the cities such as Taipei, Tainan, Taichung, KaoHsiung etc. these big cities should have strong connection.

This is a good deal. I have never tried this before but maybe for my next travel trio ^^
This seems so good. Hope we get this facilities here as well.
Having a pocket wifi is really useful for travelling. Would love to get one if travelling in a group!
I have not try their wifi portal as that time occur a miscommunication and I not able try their service. my advice apply early within one week so you can collect it when touch down at the country.
Absolutely useful information, even though I don’t have plans to visit Taiwan anytime soon. The price is really reasonable, especially when shared among the group members.
I think it is very wise to share the pocket wifi when we travel in a group, share out the cost its so worth it. Will consider this when I go to Taiwan.
This is very helpful for travellers in Taiwan. And definitely I will consider this. 🙂
We don’t have like thia rental in Manila… too young for this kind of services.
Now this is an interesting share so thank you for it. Will certainly take note when I head over to Taiwan. Cheers!
