Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Cost for landline call in Taiwan

Postby marasan » 09 Aug 2012, 16:39

Does anybody know what the per-minute cost is for making a landline call in Taiwan (landline to landline)? I phrase the question in a simple way like this because I heard that the cost is the same regardless of whether you're calling your neighbor or someone in another part of Taiwan. Is this correct? Thank you.

In city calls were about 1nt a minute, not very much. I think its now this rate regardless of where in Taiwan you call, landline only obviously.
Cat-gut strings are made from kitten guts, stretched out to near breaking point and then hardened with grue saliva. As a result these give a feeling of Pain and anguish whenever played, and often end up playing themselves backwards as part of satanic rituals.

Okay, thanks for that. I know it's low enough that I never have checked the bill. But I'm working on a volunteer project so I need to know. I'll update when I find out the exact cost, unless someone here beats me to it!

Thank you! Man, that's very reasonable (1.6 NT for three minutes, 1.6 NT for 5 mins., or 1.5 NT for 5 mins., depending on the plan). And 1NT for 10 mins from 2300 to 0800 hours. Great, thanks again!
