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

Yes, and we've never had issues, even during the coup. - Oct 19, 2017
Yes, post will ask you what you are interested in and usually have it installed prior to your arrival. - Sep 21, 2017
Internet is very good and inexpensive. The embassy will arrange installation for you before you arrive at post. You can arrange to have the speed increased once you arrive. I've found the service to be better than I had available in the US. - Jun 8, 2017
Yes. GSO can help set it up before you arrive. But even "unlimited" data isn't really. It can slow quite a bit during peak times. - Sep 27, 2016
Reasonable priced and reliable most of the time. - Jun 14, 2016
Easily available and cheap internet. We streamed five devices at once and no one hiccuped. It gets slow in the evenings as people get home. I strongly recommend a VPN, we use the Buffalo Cloakbox from Witopia. - Aug 2, 2015
