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

Yes and very cheap, though this seems to vary from house to house. I've had no problems streaming Netflix with the local providers. Some people are forced to rely on expensive 4G web routers instead of the cheaper land-based options because of consistency issues. - Nov 29, 2017
Yes, not too expensive, but also not too reliable. - Nov 3, 2015
Internet was good and cheap, I don't know what we paid exactly but it was sufficient for downloading movies from iTunes and skyping everyday. - Nov 26, 2014
Yes. About US$200 a year, very affordable! Reliability of service varies. - Jul 29, 2013
Yes, cheap, maybe around $25 a month. - Jun 21, 2013
Yes, there is a start up fee then monthly service fees. I paid about US$200 for two years plus US$25 a month. - Feb 3, 2012

Yes. Less than $50 per month. - May 3, 2010
Yes, about $100 a month for internet. - Jan 13, 2010
