This is my first post. I need some suggestions of places to stay in Asia where I can work as an online English teacher. Needless to say, I will need a stable internet connection with download speeds of 5.0 and upload speeds of .5 or higher.
If any of you are working as online teachers then you realize the importance of this. My company will fine me $24 if I cancel a lesson within one hour! So...I can't live in a place where the connection goes out because of a storm. I can pay for good internet and to have a modem installed in my place. My job requires me to connect via cable to the router. The problem is that I'll be there for about 3-4 months.
I was really hoping to return to Bail, but the few co-working spaces there are not designed for English teachers. I could get fiber optic internet installed, but I will need to sign a one year contract. Apparently rats eat through the thin lines, so getting fiber optic doesn't guarantee 24/7 service.
I will need to live alone, so I won't disturb anyone too. Bangkok seems like an option, but no one will verify the fiber optic internet there. I've asked in a few groups and haven't received a response yet. I just want to stay in a cheap place for about 3-4 months until I begin working in Vietnam.
I wouldn't even mind haivng the option of gonig to an internet cafe. If the internet cafes will only me to connect my laptop to the router and work within a sound proof enclosed space.
