San Jose - Post Report Question and Answers

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

It is avaiable and didn't take that long to get, but its far more expensive than some other countries we've been in and for a much lower bandwidth. And there are days, like Saturday nights, when you have the idea the entire neighborhood are all on Netflix together when you don't think you are really getting what you paid for...but still, its adequate enough. - Jul 2018

Internet is available through a couple of companies. It goes out frequently. The average for our internet & cable, which includes movie & sports channels, is approximately $120 per month. For long-distance calling, I recommend Vonage or another VOIP service. - Jun 2013
