Yes, but ours doesn't seem so fast and drops often. It can take 1-2 weeks to install, it is best to have your sponsor install it before you come. - Dec 2016


We have really good internet for about US$80 per month. That's a fair amount, but we watch almost all our TV that way, so it's worth it to us. Quality of internet depends on which company serves your area, so it's worth asking about that before renting a place or accepting a housing assignment. (We use UPC and have been satisfied with it.) - Mar 2016


Yes, for about US$30-40 a month. Good reliability. - Sep 2015


Internet access is readily available thought it usually requires a long-term contract. All the same providers for cell phones offer internet. UPC, Orange, etc. seem to be the most common. You can get very high speed if you want. My internet costs me about US$30 per month for 10 mb of speed, which is usually all I need. - Nov 2014

Cable Internet with Aster: It's okay service with decent speed. Cost is pretty cheap compared to US-based IP services. I pay roughly 110PLN ($40/mo) for fairly fast cable internet and phone service (more if I call to the US). - Aug 2011


Yes. It is hit-or-miss as to the quality. If you have TP DSL (the national company), it is spotty and prone to outages. Netia and other cable companies exist but the further away from downtown you are, the less likely you are to be able to use their services. When it comes to internet, you have to steel yourself to be patient and flexible. - Mar 2011
