Internet is available with embassy plans through Zain and Orange. It can be spotty and slow and the Jordan caps the Internet. Zain is putting in fiber throughout most of West Amman. This should make Internet better. - May 2015

HIGH speed...no. There is WIMAX available throughout the city and ADSL. None of if it is HIGH speed, all of it is expensive. Orange ADSL is kind of a hassle to set up, but we seem to have better/more reliable service than most of the WIMAX folks...i recommend getting orange ADSL over the other options. - Mar 2012
