don't forget "tampo" ask your wives and girlfriends if you don't know. Thats the worst. My wife is really good at it at times.

It is hot here, but id rather be hot than shoveling snow in the US right now!
Just checked my speed... 32MB

And.. that's what Florida is for.

There is always a trade off and certainly no nirvana, and I would be one of the first to admit that about Malta. so while internet and cost of living aren't so cheap, a whole lot of other aspects of life can be cheap and good - day on the beach, cheap arts and cultural events (euro 10 a night for world class Jazz in summer's not bad!), and easily a good community of friends to beam into. Lots of expats here that meet regularly, keep each other sane, and a lot you can enjoy for little cash. I spend a lot on internet, but it's my work, and I am online huge amounts each day so I don't think it a bad investment. Rentals are good here for what you get - especially out of season. It really depends how you want to live. Like the person who commented on Cyprus above - buy local produce and not international brand names and you can live on a budget. Climate and English speaking a huge bonus for most expats here though outweigh the other more costly aspects. See maltainsideout for some info on water bills, and other general info and some expat insights from those who have moved here.

Hi,

Check out the lastest internet development in Malaysia. Due to competitions between telco companies, Internet services are much advanced compared to 6 months ago.
like "UNIFI", broadband etc

Cheers

but i need pretty fast internet (would be even better with low pings to europe...), good weather ( i'm in Poland, and it's very cold ), and low costs of living. i wouldn't mind the sea or ocean too

let's look at what i so far considered:

Thailand/Malaysia - it's not cold for sure, but internet is pretty slow and since my work depends on it, i don't know... also, i looked at telegeography, and all traffic from east-asia is going to US and then to Europe, that's really bad... it's slow i checked and there is average of 500 ms ping replies )

Vietnam/Laos - underdeveloped still. some stuff is actually more expepsinve han in europe (like internet). won't even say a word about internet speed.

Cyprus/Malta - pretty warm and close to europe. but internet costs and overall costs of living not really good.

Uruguay - so far the best bet, but internet still not quite good... and i don't know spanish but that i can learn. but then again - electronics in Uruguay is so expensive, and so cheap compared to malaysia.

any other ideas? Bali in Indonesia also quite good, but also slow internet...

more developed countries are more expesinve... but maybe i missed some small (or not so small) country that is pretty cheap but also has quite fast internet? if you have any ideas, please post them here
