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

There is internet service, but it's not fast and it's not reliable. You can get unlimited 3G service or pay-as-you-go 4G service. The wireless router's signal in my house doesn't cover all the bedrooms. - Aug 4, 2017
There are a few choices for internet available. All are hit and miss and not that fast. They will cut you off for no reason, and never refund your money so beware. - Apr 6, 2017
Internet is available (Vodaphone and Surfline) though it isn't fast. Upon arrival you'll need a few days to get it set up. - Aug 11, 2016
Yes, but can be unreliable. We pay around US$50 a month for basic Internet. You can choose your package. Most expensive package is around US$150 per month - May 4, 2014
Vodaphone has “high-speed” service, when it works. But customer service is non-existent. Expect to wait weeks for installation or service requests. Disruptions in service are commonplace. The most common package costs about $70/month and is adequate to use Skype. Vodaphone has recently upgraded the service in Cantonments and it is adequate for streaming video. - Apr 24, 2012
Yes. Around $100/month for high speed internet. - Aug 9, 2011
Internet works most of the time. It is too slow to stream video. Skype is possible but not great quality. Cost is around $60 a month. - Jun 11, 2011
Yes, but service can be scatty and the "customer service center" is not able to actually troubleshoot or assist. You usually have to go to the office in person. It is about GHC 70/month. You do not get refunded or credited if you do not have service. In THEORY you can write a letter, but I know of no one who was successful in getting credit. - Feb 24, 2010
Yes - Feb 5, 2010
Yes, about $70 US a month. - May 24, 2009
