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

Yes, ours was hooked up within a few days. - Dec 25, 2017
Yes. It takes about a week to get installed if it has not already been installed before you arrive. Fairly stable, and you can stream. - Sep 26, 2017
Easy to set up and reliable internet connection. - Feb 6, 2017
Not really "high" speed" but it's cheap. - May 26, 2016
Yes, but spotty. Weather affected service, and sometimes seemingly nothing at all messed with service. - Aug 19, 2014
Internet is available through BH Telecom, which is awful. They have horrific customer service, and the speed is mediocre (good enough to stream, mostly). The qualification for being hired as a technician is to be someone's cousin. Don't expect assistance if you are using Apple products. - Nov 26, 2012
Yes, but I wouldn't call it high speed. It's ADSL (speeds we had in the US over a decade ago). Everything is metered, and the biggest plan (20GB) is about $30/month. Going over 20GB -- which is possible if you stream video or download a lot of stuff (iTunes, etc) -- gets expensive. - Aug 17, 2011
Yes. $45 a month. - May 31, 2011
Yes - reasonablty priced. - May 18, 2010
Yes. We got the highest speed and pay $30 per month. - Jun 19, 2009
Yes. You can get DSL here and works great but it could be a little expensive depending on your use (different plans with different download/upload allowances). - Mar 18, 2009
It is available, the quality differs. - Dec 17, 2008
