I am considering moving to Bali for a couple of years or so with my wife and 2 children aged 7 & 8.
I am an IT professional & can work remotely via the internet running systems for the New Zealand company I currently work for.
I have also read many contradictory reports of internet connectivity in Bali - especially for accessing anything outside Indonesia.
As my work depends on remotely accessing New Zealand servers over a VPN a stable connection with reasonable speed is essential - is this a reality in Bali?
Can you please advise if there are specific areas with better connectivity than others, and reliability of internet connection, bandwidth and power.
We also will be looking to live near an international school for the children - there appear to be a number of good options, although many look very expensive...
Then there's the visa issue... any recommendations for good agencies to sort out KITAS or other suitable visa for us to live in Bali for several years?
Also any recommendations/gotchas for leasing a property and good agencies to work through?
