4There is a different issue here at play, much more important than the download speeds that #1,2,3 worry about.
the Kindle Fire is currently only available in the US and for copyright reasons you CANNOT download movies when outside the US
A quote from the last page 'To purchase, download or stream movies and TV shows, you must be physically present in the U.S. '
So the internet speed is the least of your worries.

8Why not stock up at home and if that's not enough for you, you can add downloads while on the road. It's not like there's a weight penalty for lugging around those videos. (PS: internet in some parts of Asia is way faster than in the US. Just saying).

9#7, netflix doesn't work normally outside of the US either. It can be cracked but that takes some effort and i haven't heard about anybody managing to do that on a Kindle fire.
In general, I've noticed a large amount of speculation on this branch. most of it not hindered by any actual knowledge of the subject at hand.

10In re-reading, I note that it was you, #9, who presumed that OP was from the US, thereby making it, in thine own eyes, true.
But maybe he/she is not. Maybe, as of oct 9, 2012, while dreaming about a future SEA excursion, from an armchair in Manchester UK, he/she thought of buying a Kindle Fire in a few weeks in preparation for a trip he/she is thinking of taking. If leaving in the next 2 weeks, and your assumption of residence is valid, maybe you made a point. My feeling is, we just don't know, and OP's question might touch on broader interests than simple US copyright laws and No. Korean internet speeds.
In general, I've noticed a large amount of speculation on this branch, much of it based on pretty weak, albeit imperious, hopscotch logic

However, It doesn't matter where the OP is from given that movie downloads on the KIndle Fire will only work in the US. Even if the OP is from someplace else. Presumably when Kindle Fire becomes available in the UK there will be similar restrictions. So it doesn't change the answer that, at this point in time, video downloads on a Kindle are not available when travelling abroad.

12Maybe buy a smaller Kindle and download the books you want before you go, or on the go - why spend all that time on downloading a huge movie which will only entertain once for a few hours, when you could have 5000 books on a normal Kindle and have 1000's of hours of entertainment. Plus you won't have to charge it up more than once a month or so.
