Now Taiwan wants to be world's biggest WiFi hotspot

Wireless Taiwan

Well, looks like Taiwan too now wants to jump on the wireless data bandwagon, following Philadelphia and San Francisco; they've introduced a project plan they're titling M-Taiwan (hmm, wonder what that M could stand for?) that would cost 1.1 billion and shroud the island in cloud of WiFi and something they call iB3G, or Internet Beyond 3G (beats us, but they describe it as 802.11b/g service for 3G/GSM cellphones with WiFi). And apparently all this is going to begin starting Q1 next year, so watch out, wireless data comin' out the yin-yang.
