On Junary 13, 2009 Vibo Telecom, one of the five operators of 3G services in Taiwan, announced that it co-operates with Sim2Travel, a mobile virtual network operator registered in the British Virgin Islands, to provide roaming service for subscribers of its V-Tone card and of Sim2Travel’s World Card. According to Vibo, the roaming service will be executed through placing V-Tone SIM and BVI company’s World Card USIM in a handset.

The dual-card roaming service charges a minimum rate of NT$1 (US$0.03) per minute for voice calls from Taiwan to overseas destinations, NT$10/min for calls from China or Hong Kong to Taiwan, and NT$4.4/min for receiving relayed calls from the US, Japan, Singapore, etc.
