Well well well.. its a great month for me here in Bali, I have now finally graduated to somewhat of a modern internet! Fibre optic internet!
For years, I have struggled with internet speeds and this has always been a source of much frustration for me trying to upload high resolution photos, upload videos, watch any videos online or any other rather mundane tasks that most people (not my friends in Palau mind you..) pretty much take for granted. When I lived in Yap I believe we had 128 kbps, once I made it to Lembeh I was up to 256, then until last week here in Bali I had 512kbps (all of which were expensive and satellite based). However, Telkom Indihome Fibre Optic Internet has now been released here in Bali and it finally reached my area and I now boast a booming 10mbps! Last week I was FTPing uploads at 8 to 15 kbps, needless to say, a 200mb video file would take a very long time! Today, I am now uploading at 100 kbps, now I can even utilize the Cloud to backup my images.. That is reassuring.
(no comments from you fast internet people ruining my day 😛 )
