Is high-speed home Internet access available? How long does it typically take to install it after arrival?

Internet is good. I routinely use Facetime or stream without issues. - Aug 2, 2016
US$200 per year. The housing compound has the slowest internet in the city, max 12mbps. - Aug 2, 2015
Yes and it is more or less reliable. - Aug 12, 2014
Yes, at about $25 per month. Speed varies, though. The Ridge was wired many years ago, and so it cannot accept higher bandwidths and has the slowest connections. But you can still stream movies and television there. Off the compound, you can get slightly faster connections. - May 18, 2013
Internet is available, and the speed is fine. Though there are times in the evening when you know everyone is streaming because it gets a little choppy and slow. Internet goes out occasionally, but overall it's decent. - Dec 27, 2012
Yes but it goes in and out all the time. It costs about $30/month. - Oct 1, 2011
Yes; the embassy provides it. - Mar 31, 2008
