Citizens can enjoy wireless broadband networking by connecting to a WiFi AP. However, the effect of electromagnetic fields (EMF) on human health is a public concern. Based on the low-power radio-frequency specifications announced by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) suggests that EMF power should be lower than 1 microwatt/cm2 (1,000μW/cm2 or 10,000,000μW/m2). The National Communications Commission(NCC) measured the EMF power of WiFi APs in June 2008. The result was 0.000000379 microwatt/cm2, which is far lower than the suggested value announced by the EPA. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) of the Taipei City Government has also requested service providers measure the EMF power of their AP locations. According to the conclusions of the "Electromagnetic fields and public health: Base stations and wireless technologies" (WHO, May 2006, FS304), 'there is no convincing scientific evidence that the weak RF signals from wireless networks cause adverse health effects.'
The service since July 1, 2020, cooperate with iTaiwan of the National Development Committee of the Executive Yuan to cancel the account password verification login method, so you can connect and use it without applying for an account.
