          You don’t seem to comply with the minimum upload bandwith, because of that its a no.
          If you are able to meet the minimum requirements than I wil give you my vote.

          Yep, check again about the bandwidth requirements; maybe you can connect to another ISP. Also note the legal restrictions for USA (check again on website). There is a discord channel for all of the languages that you speak :slight_smile: And due to the fact that that combination of languages is quite specific for the country I was born in, I will guess that we are born in the same country :slight_smile: However I’m still in my country while you are on the other side of the globe.
