Taiwan has become the first country in the world to offer free WiFi connectivity to its citizens and all its foreign tourists. Wi-Fi (also spelled Wifi or WiFi) is a popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or connect to the internet wirelessly using radio waves.
The name (Wi-Fi) is a trademark name, and was stated to be a play on the audiophile term Hi-Fi. The Wi-Fi Alliance defines Wi-Fi as any “wireless local area network (WLAN) products that are based on the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) 802.11 standards”.
The Wi-Fi Alliance initially used the advertising slogan “The Standard for Wireless Fidelity”, for Wi-Fi but later removed the phrase from their marketing.
