RE: Internet, Schminternet
It just depends on what annoys you more - commuting or slow internet.

Hmm... decisions, decisions... Consider

I would gladly take slower internet at home to give up an hour of driving to and from work.

If you are not downloading a ton of shit , 40mb/s is enough, I would choose to be closer to work.
You are also losing an hour a day more in traveling to work for more internet speed, and you know what they say...time is money.
So much this! It is not a consideration for me at all. Shorter commute please.

I've made my decision. I'm going with the fast Internet. I love cutting-edge technology too much not to take advantage of this opportunity. Big Grin

Doesn't this go in the "First World Problems" thread? Hehe.

RE: Internet, Schminternet
I was able to find an apartment that is only 30 minutes away from work in the right district, one that looks very nice to boot. Unfortunately it's quite expensive, so I'll have to rent it together with a co-worker that I'm on good terms with.

That's almost 500 euros , right ? Not cheap at all.

Yeah and that price is not factoring in the utility costs (another ~3000CZK/~110€). I can cut that in half by renting it together with someone else; I think ~300€ isn't too bad for an apartment like that.
