“Digital Taitung, Endless Possibility”
Taitung’s free Wi-Fi, TTFREE, officially became available to the public on October 1, 2020. As of now, TTFREE has been accessed over 2 million times. There are an average of around 9,749 users every day. The record for the most users in one day stands at 33,953. The Taitung County Government stated that the new version of TTFREE features fast connection speeds and continuous service. The new TTFREE has increased coverage because it’s supported by both fiber optic and 4G cables. Public and private institutions, schools, hospitals and other organizations have joined TTFREE’s network. The area TTFREE covers has increased because there are now 682 public hotspots. TTFREE has also integrated with mobile signal transmitters on public buses. Now, users can access TTFREE while on public buses to find information about where buses are in real time. TTFREE is designed around how people actually use their mobile devices. Therefore, TTFREE offers access through various social media platforms. Users simply use their smartphone to connect to TTFREE and can use their cell phone number, Facebook or Line account to log in. This makes it easier for users from abroad because it’s not necessary to sign up or enter any personal information.
