Why are you even using transportation tap cards to compare against telco simcards?

At least 26 analogy better, buy sim card in tampines cannot use in jurong...

uu card can use on kkh bus? sure bo?

update: can. from wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EasyCard):

Buses

The EasyCard can be used on bus systems in Taipei, New Taipei, Keelung, Taoyuan, Taichung, Tainan, and Kaohsiung City.

When paying bus fare, the EasyCard machine prevents repeated transactions on the same card until the bus travels into the next paying section. The bus driver can reset this mechanism so passengers are able to swipe multiple times to pay for others. Transfers between the MRT and bus systems offer half-fare discounts which are automatically taken when the card is scanned.

In Taichung, users can enjoy an 8-kilometer free ride.
