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

Yes. Post has recognized the necessity of internet and ensured basic service is available upon arrival. For 25Mbps and a 100Gb cap, the price is around $30/month. 50Mbps and no cap runs us about $80/month and is reliable. More than enough speed for video streaming, Skype, etc. - Sep 27, 2017

High speed DSL is available, but it's still much slower than the US. Costs are about $45/month for a 2MB line. - Dec 3, 2009
