I is for Internet and I could go work on Mars

I was thinking mayhap I should have applied to go to Mars (http://www.mars-one.com/) after all as a VA I can work anywhere. Trouble is if I go to Mars I might have Internet and communication problems and then what, I have enough Internet problems as it is. Will someone go to Mars one day and be the first VA on Mars, I wonder.
I don’t think I would manage on Mars. I need my communication and if I didn’t have it I would struggle. I like skype, if I couldn’t contact people I would be lost. I could work for some of my clients as we correspond via Whatsapp and email, so that is something I would need to have. Communication is big deal to me in my business. What if Communication or the Internet goes down on Mars, how will I communicate with my clients. I would lose business very quickly, on Earth we can just about manage as long as we have communication soon but if it went off on Mars who knows when we may get it up again and that could be a problem.
I would have to take one of my clients with me to Mars as she would be lost without me, simple as that. I couldn’t leave her here, so she would have to come with otherwise she probably would not let me go.
How do we know what communication would be like on Mars seen as we have not had human’s set foot on Mars yet, it’s an unknown world. 
There could be a communication delay and how would that work with doing urgent work or even transferring files via Dropbox, could I get that on Mars, I wonder. Would I be able to be in touch with Postnet to send info via Dropbox for printing. These would be factors I would need to find out before thinking of going to Mars.
I certainly could work for a new colony of people on Mars as a VA surely, especially if I am the only VA on Mars in the colony! How would I charge for my services, would we use money on Mars, I certainly wouldn’t want to work for free. You see there is many dilemma’s in the way, before even thinking of going to Mars.

The Internet is not reliable here, how do I know it will be reliable on Mars. Do I take a chance and just go and see, hmmm. I think maybe I should just dream about being the first VA on Mars, it might be a better idea than going there.
