The projects 'M-Taiwan' and 'U-Taiwan' are aimed at universalising Internet services using ICT in Taiwan.
 
These projects are currently promoted by the Cabinet with the goal of making Taiwan a model society for ICT applications as stated by Vice Premier Tsai Ing-wen. 'M-Taiwan' project was implemented in 2005. Delivering a speech at the Global Business Dialogue on e-Commerce held in Taipei, Tsai noted that the main purpose of the 'M-Taiwan' project is to integrate the country's technological capability to boost the penetration rates of mobile phones, wireless networking and Internet access. The  goal is to increase the number of households with broadband access to at least 4.7 million and switch off analogue television signals by 2010 to make way for digital television signals. Taiwan will proceed to the 'U Taiwan' project in the next stage, where the Internet technology will be combined with smart devices to provide Internet services to anyone, anywhere. At that stage, the government will work to enhance the country's broadband penetration rate to 80 percent and promote high-definition television to every household, as stated by Tsai.
