Yerevan - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Yes it's available and the embassy set it up for us. We did have frequent outages. - Jan 2022

We have the highest speed of internet, for $60/month and it is the worst internet we have had in 15 years. We have extenders, several routers throughout the house and it is still not great. - Aug 2021

Internet speed is pretty decent and reliable. Nowadays it is installed when you arrive. When we got here we had to wait several weeks for it to be installed in our house. - May 2021

High-speed internet is available. Downtown it was a quick installation. Some homes needed trenching to get service which took a month or more. The embassy employee association can help you rent a USB wireless NIC to get internet while you wait on install. - Mar 2017

It is accessible, but not in all areas. - Oct 2014

Internet is improving. Can't remember how much, but it's not that expensive. - Sep 2011

Yes, but internet is still a bit spotty in Armenia. It is likely to continue improving, however. We pay $35 per month. There is probably better service out there (for a higher fee). - Oct 2009

Higher speed internet is available through the state monopoly. Embassy residences could sign up for high speed internet through the Employee Association/Commissary for US$35 per month. - Jul 2008

Yes, cost is based on usage but a DSL line can cost US$100/month (for a reasonable speed). Corruption and a lack of corporate competition have left Armenia woefully behind the rest of the world with respect to all Internet-type services. This may change in the next couple of years - but it is still surprisingly poor. - Jan 2008
