So… common sense says that the best places to work are those with good, fast, stable WiFi connections. At the same time, the thing I like best about my location independence is the ability to spend long stretches of time in places I wouldn’t normally get to spend much time in. So I’m determined to make West and Central Africa happen in 2017, specifically Benin, Togo, Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire, Gabon, Rwanda and Congo-Brazzaville. (And a month off in the DRC, but the latter will just be an offline holiday.)
If anyone has any experience with the reliability of the Internet in the region and the availability of data SIM cards in any of the countries I’ve mentioned, I’d be super grateful about insights, tipps and heads-ups, AirBnB recommendations, et cetera. I know it’s not going to be a fast, luxurious, spotless connection for most of the time, and that’s fine, I just need it to be mostly reliable, speed is secondary.
