Huh? We've had 1Gbit for ages, and there's a lot of providers offering 10x that... I'm too lazy to swap.

Most restaurants will be fine. Everything more local no chance…
You need to learn basics for sure if you plan to live there.

Hi! Not sure how actual your request is but I have land at a top kite surfing spot in Brazil. It’s in Preá, many expats are there and basically all year there is wonderful weather. Also, the World Cup was organised there in 2019, it’s relaxed and really safe. Perhaps you’ll give it a glimpse - also, my ownership has gone through federal government. But enough advertising;) the best is to get to know the place and see how you like it, stay there for a while. Later you can get back to me:)
