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

Internet is available and the embassy now keeps it installed at housing in-between residents due to the high cost and 3-4 month wait for un-installing and re-installing internet services. They only pay for the lowest level of service, however, so you'll want to bump up your service after you arrive, which you can do with a phone call. - Jul 11, 2016
They just upgraded our internet to 9-10 Mbps. (US$100/month) - Mar 3, 2013
yes, expensive - Nov 22, 2011
Yes, about $69.00 per month. But it can be slow and goes out frequently. - Jun 15, 2011
No. The standard for high-speed is 4MB/second, which really isn't available here. LIME is the only option currently, and they sell 4MB and 8MB packages, but can't deliver on them. We've got the fastest package and our speeds vary from just under 1MB/second to about 3.1MB/second, depending on time of day and load on the system - we average around 2MB/sec. Cost is about US$100/month if you ever want to go north of about 1.5MB/sec. - Dec 20, 2010
Yes, it is priced comparable to US rates, but the service is not as good (not as fast). - Feb 18, 2010
DSL US$55 a month. - Jan 22, 2009
