Have a deadline to meet but you don’t have the most conducive work space to work in? Plus, you just can’t seem to get anything done in the comfort of your own home especially when your home WiFi isn’t fast. If this is you, then you need either a work-friendly café or a co-working space.
Well then, DiscoverKL has got you covered! Here is a list of 10 places in Klang Valley with internet speed starting from 88Mbps up til 110Mbps. Intrigued yet? Bookmark this page so that you don’t have to look around aimlessly for other spots.
1. The Toast Co (110Mbps)
Located in Chinatown, you will see many people coming here to enjoy a cuppa whilst doing some work on their laptop. The only setback people will have to endure at this café is probably the limited amount of plug points around. There are some that are available, however only for the tables that are closer to the wall opposite the cashier. Generally, this spot is quite quiet, except during lunch hours but that is what you need. A spacious environment with good, scrumptious food – that caters for vegetarians as well. This spot has something for everybody. Plus point when the internet speed is 110mbps.
