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

Internet is great with very high speeds. We have First Media, 32MB download package with cable TV for about $60 USD per month. http://www.firstmedia.com/get/basic/packages#x1-combo-4k. Very fast installation. Get a DVR with your cable box. Service can drop unexpectedly so have backup options in place. We also have a Home Bolt, which provides 30 GB of internet per month for about $20 USD per month. - Feb 2018
