Yes. There are two basic providers: Claro and Tricom. Tricom is smaller and has better customer service. Claro is a nightmare. Expect to wait in long lines to receive service or pay your bills. Both of these companies take some time to set up service in the home. There are frequent internet outages, but we can stream video with no problems when it's up and running. We pay around $50/month, but most people pay more because they have cable and other services included. - Apr 29, 2013
