The WIFLY Network, officially launched in June, has acquired the certificate of accreditation by Jiwire, an international organization, to become the first city in the world to run a public WiFi network. There are 42 lines in the network, covering the main commercial districts, most chain coffee shops, MRT stations and many government-run institutions. Q-Ware System & Services Corp. has also teamed up with 7-ELEVEN to build a "digital convenience store", enabling access to network service with 100 meters of 600 7-11s. Thanks to this new innovation, Taipei residents can always stay connected to the world wherever they are in the city. For more information, visit: http://www.wifly.com.tw
