I currently telework for a US firm full time. I plan to take visit Vietnam for three months on a tourist Visa while working my full time job in Vietnam. However, I have some concerns that I hope you guys can help me out with.
Do you think I'll be able to rent an apartment or condo in Vietnam if I don't have a work visa or Vietnamese citizenship?
Does power outages still exist in Vietnam? Is this still the case? I will be working from 6 PM to 2 AM Vietnam time due to the time differences. Unsuspected power outages will prevent me from working and will cause my boss to question why my job performance. Does power outages occur during this time?
If it does go down. How long does it last?
When the power goes out, does it also affect the internet lines as well? Will I be able to get back online if I use a power generator to power up my internet modem/router? I'm not too keen on the infrastructure in Vietnam; I want to find out if I should invest in a power generator to counter the power outages.
This question is related to internet connection speed and the most important to me because it is directly related to my livelihood. Can someone let me know what speed or types of internet connections are available in Vietnam at the moment? My job requires me to be on a fast and stable internet connection. The tools that I will be using required a lot of bandwidth so I'll need a connection of over 30 Mbps down and 5 Mbps upload. Can anyone recommend a fast and stable internet connection that will allow me to work in Vietnam? I will need to be able to connect to the US via a secured VPN connection to perform my work. Can I sign up for internet service if I'm not a Vietnamese national?
Thank you in advance.
