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

Yes, up to 200 Mbps. - Nov 22, 2017
Yes, they can often install it prior to arrival. The quality can be spotty so many people change it after they arrive. - Jul 14, 2016
Yes, far better than what we got in DC. US$60-100/month depending on the speed desired. The house walls are concrete and you may want an additional router/repeater if you want wifi throughout the house. - Dec 8, 2015
Yes. We pay US$80 for internet and home phone. - Jun 9, 2015
Speeds are usually slower than advertised, but I think a 10mb is US$100/month. We have a combo plan which includes cable, home phone, and 2mb internet for US$60/month. - Mar 23, 2015
Yes and it is about US$75 a month through a bundle with cable and telephone service. Not sure what stand-alone costs. - Oct 29, 2014
Yes. Average cost. - Jul 8, 2014
Tigo again. About $19/month for reliable DSL. - Apr 28, 2012
There is theoretically high-speed internet, but there are so many people on an unsure infrastructure that doing anything as resource-intense as streaming video can make you want to pull your hair out. Remember being "Tigo-ed?" Yeah, they run the cable and the internet, too. - May 21, 2010
High Speed is readily available and inexpensive. We have a cable, phone, and high speed internet package for US$55/month. We get 1meg/ps connection speed, although they have packages that range from 128kpbs to 2megs. Skype and Vonage all work fine here, although at $0.03 per minute on the local cell phones, many people just dial direct. - Feb 28, 2009
