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

HA! No. You must use a "puck" for internet and buy scratch cards to refill it. The embassy is providing pucks for staff. It is somewhat reliable, but do not expect to be streaming Netflix or downloading lots of items quickly. You may be able to do it, but it will cost you. Internet is super slow. - Oct 5, 2017
The maximum speed is 512Mb, but it's largely unaffordable. You can get a nights/weekend 256Mb plan for around $100 month. - Jan 2, 2012
