One - the internet at my temp hotel is fast! Hit 45 Mbps download speed here (via speedtest.net), about 5-10x faster than my lousy TWC cable connection back in the states. Fast!
How fast in practical terms? Not sure...the other thing I found out, Singapore is a censored country. They are one of the ultimate in big government telling you what to do. After a bit of research, turns out things like certain YouTube videos are blocked, as is anything homosexuality related (being gay here is illegal apparently), amusingly enough - heterosexuality gets similar treatment as most things pornography is also banned. The list goes on to include hate speech, anti-islam views, etc etc.
Don't like it? Tough. Its a bit surprisingly to me actually. While I expected things like this in China (checking gmail or facebook is a paaaain) or other places, didn't quite expect it in first class countries like Singapore. Its a good reminder that free speech is not an universal right...
Oh and another thing...Singaporean Chili Crab is sorta overrated.
