Going to Bogota, Columbia for six weeks. What's the safety / internet situation like there? Got any tips for a newbie?

My girlfriend just got a six-week placement in Bogota and I'm going to go down with her. I honestly (and ignorantly) don't know a lot about Bogota except for what I've read in the media and in a few travel books.
How safe is Bogota? I've read that the cities are generally safe but travelling outside of the cities can be risky - is this still true?
While I'm down there I'm hoping to keep working on client projects, for which I'll need internet access. What's the quality of the internet like in Bogota? Is high speed somewhat plentiful or is it scarce?
I've travelled a fair bit but never in South America, so any tips anyone may have will be welcome. Thanks!
