How is the Internet Service where you live? What providers do you use? Pros and cons of your providers.
I’m about 60% of my time in Southeast Asia for work and 40% in Rural Ontario, Canada helping at parents small farm. I have (have had) Internet Service with several providers.
Home: Nor-Del Cable 30/5 Mbps 300gb $50 CAD monthly after taxes.
Good: They are a very small local ISP so I like supporting them. Friendly staff and techs.
Bad: Oh my… Well they are a very small ISP. No ipv6, one link from their provider Brantford Hydro goes down and the whole network goes down. Stability is meh at best. Price should be much lower.
Mobile: Fido 4gb LTE data for $15 a month.
Good: Price is great for Canada. I have no phone service, I use a voip.ms account and clients for voice and SMS over data. Works fantastic, people can contact me on a local number when I’m overseas, with the odd kink.
Bad: Fido is the budget brand of Rogers. Rogers used to be great when they were early Cable Modem and Cable Access TV only. Coverage is sketchy in some parts of my County. Dead Zones
Mobile: DTAC 899THB monthly ($30 USD) 30GB + 5GB LTE Roaming Data in other SEA countries (Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia). 400 mins talk time.
Good: Perfect for my work as I bounce between these countries frequently. I have my girlfriend on my account too. Easy to setup with a sim and plan at Suvurnabhumi Airport (BKK).
Bad: Text messages in Thai I can’t read. When I have to call customer service. My Thai is mediocre at best, and their Engrish is just as bad sometimes.
