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

there is one provider for internet here. If you are in embassy housing you can have that set up prior to your arrival. I thought it was pretty fast and I didn't have trouble streaming video. - Jul 2020

The Embassy takes care of this prior your arrival. - Apr 2019

Yes, internet works well. The embassy did a great job of having it installed and ready to go when we moved in; hopefully they're still offering that service! - Aug 2018

ADSL is available via ANTEL and I never had any issues with speed or connectivity. Speeds were fast enough to stream TV and movies. Installation is fast, within 1-2 days after the request is made. - Jun 2017

Pretty good, not excellent. - Oct 2016

Yes, cost about US$100/month. It has been ok but expect to not have service for some unknown reason for short periods of time. Internet and phone service is a government monopoly and they are installing fiber-optics slowly, but surely. - Mar 2014

Speeds are so-so, and service is spotty, with frequent problems/disconnects. Costs are fairly high, as well (around $50/month for basic ADSL). - May 2013
