    I live in Singapore. My internet plan offers 100Mbps down and 10Mbps up. Flat rate. No cap. I get faster speeds now than what I got in the US before I moved earlier this year.

    Most days I average about 80/7-8. The cost is comparable to the US. Fiber is being installed in my area of Singapore over the next month.

    I use VOIP and send international faxes over broadband. If the internet here sucked, I would not be able to do either very easily.

    The ISP personnel are also very personable and very quick to deal with any issues that happen to arise.

    The only downside to Singapore is censorship, and there are ways around that as well.

    "Singapore, as a small densely populated island nation and a pioneer, continues to be one of the few countries in the World in which broadband internet access is readily available to just about any would-be user anywhere in the country, with connectivity of over 99%." -Wikipedia

    Don't get me wrong, I have many friends who live in Singapore and complain about their internet connections.

    Things may have changed, thank you very much for updating my information. I appreciate it

    I'd take updates with a grain of salt. Just like your friends in Singapore, I can only really offer opinions based upon my own experiences.

    As far as facts, they seem to indicate that Singapore is a pioneer and early adopter of technologies with high connectivity rates amongst it's populace. Customer service is what you make of it.

    We just needed a break from the US. It's extremely difficult to watch a country you love fall apart.

    Singapore is first world. Quality of life is excellent. English is one of the national languages. It's a decent hub for Asia. It's not only a free market economy but it's ranked second on the Heritage Foundation's Index of Economic Freedom. Both corporate and personal tax are low. Crime rates are very low. If we have kids, this would be a great place to raise them.

    Both Will and I had been here before. He loves hot weather and has always wanted to live on an Island.

    I also have friends here so it made the transition to a new place easier.

    I'm completely the opposite. I can't stand hot weather.

    *laugh* Ditto. I love snow. I tolerate the heat.

    But I can't really say much about it as Singapore was my idea.
