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

Internet is great quality when it is working. You can have it set up prior to arrival at post. It is expensive though, with most people paying $110 per month. - Aug 2019

There are a few internet providers. Access Haiti was OK for my needs at home. NuTV was a decent TV provider. - Jun 2019

No. Internet service is inconsistent. It works until it doesn't. Speed is tolerable. Not fast, but not painstakingly slow. Cannot handle online gaming without significant lag. - Aug 2018

Internet is on the expensive side, but available if you want to pay (depending on where you live). There is a new option that the AEA has available, not sure of all the details, but it seems to be fairly easy to get installed and works fairly well. - Apr 2017

Digicel offers reliable service. They were very responsive when I phoned for service and offered English-language phone assistance. There are other options as well. - Dec 2016

Yes, US$50/month on up to double or triple that, if you want very high speed. - Sep 2013

US$99/month "Medium Spender" package through Viola. Speed has gotten significantly better within the past few months. (I stream TV & movies online and it rarely, if ever, stops to buffer now.) - Sep 2011

Define "high speed". Internet is available and is fairly reliable. Voila seems to have a much better reputation than Access Haiti. Speeds are not too bad and the cost is about $100 per month. Service has generally been reliable with only a few problems during storms, civil unrest, etc. - Jan 2011
