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

My building came with internet, but it was cheaper to get service through an outside vendor. We paid about $40/month for high-speed internet. Usually had no problems streaming Netflix, HBO, etc. - Jul 2019


It's not particularly high-speed - but it's available for about US$30 a month. - Mar 2016


We have Wi-Fi through our apartment, but we also pay for our own internet for our Vonage line and to stream TV shows and movies. We pay about $40 per month. However, every 6 weeks “a shark bites the undersea internet cable” (according to the local government) and service is spotty for days. I am not making this up! - Aug 2015


Yes. It is about US$80/month....but it is NOT very fast. There is lots of buffering and times when it just stops working. Not to mention, the times when they shut down Facebook and other sites. You definitely need a VPN here. - May 2014


around 60 bucks a month. - Jul 2011


Yes available. About $65 a month not unreasonable - Sep 2010


They say it is high-speed, however.... But you can access the internet - prices are about $20 a month depending on your usage. What can be troublesome is the government closing things down at times. Facebook is now being shut down here - everyone is working on finding ways to get past the walls. - Nov 2009


Yes, it's called "high speed" but it's not. US$90 per month. - Dec 2008
