Wifi at these places usually costs 500NT per month for unlimited internet. You can afford to buy coffee but can't afford to buy coffee? Something tells me you shouldn't be buying coffee.

just go to any 7. The coffee is around 35 to 40 NT and u can buy internet for 500NT a month. Wifly also offers a "mobile internet" thing for 1500 per year. I suppose its the same like the normal internet offer. Its made for mobile devices I just don't know if u an use it with a notebook. Anyways I suppose 7/11 is the best choice and you can usually sit there as long as you want.

nice!
last time I try to help you!


I wasn't trying to be nasty! Just stating a fact. If you asked me for directions to the closest McDonalds and I sent you to to a Hala Bread store, I would be OK with you saying thats not what you're looking for. No offense intended :eh:

LOL

I do most of my work at home, but it would be nice if there was a place to go to a couple of times a week. There is a difference between not affording and being a penny pincher and I am the latter...but it would be nice to get out of the house, especially when my wife is at home as her beauty tends to distract me :lick: (which would you rather do, spend time with your honey or stare at walls of medieval chinese text on a computer screen? when shes at home, all of my work motivation seems to dissolve)

But it looks like there aint nowhere close cept 711, oh well, thanks for the replies! If anyone knows any place I am still happy to hear!

I'll second the cappuccinos at Gusto. Probably the best bang for your buck in Taichung right now.

I made that post a long time ago, before I had a scooter, so was trying to stay local.

Dunno about Mcadees...

Where do you live in Beitun? On jianxing and chongde rds there is a lattea which has free wifi, but at night the place is pretty packed (during the day on weekends too). There aint a whole bunch of nice, sit down coffee shops with wifi there unfortunately. Once I had a scooter I ended up going to early bird a lot. Most places are over in that area it seems.
