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

Yes, just a day or two for install as Nichada customer service helps you get it set up with the local provider. - Aug 2019


Yes, should have within one to two weeks depending upon where you live. - Jun 2018


Yes, easy to set up. Nichada has a contract with True, downtown has other provider options. - Apr 2017


Typically yes. It was surprising that we landed in a building that is only 5-6 years old but was not wired for ethernet, so we have an ADSL connection. It is normally ok for Netflix, etc but it's not ethernet so backing up files/photos/etc to the cloud can take hours at times. We pay $35/month for landline phone/internet. - Nov 2016


Not expensive but not high speed either. You won't get what you pay for, that's for sure. - Aug 2015

We have True, and it's good on the whole but sometimes frustrating! I think we pay around $85 a month. Our maid usually takes the bill to the 7-11 and pays there - very convenient! - Feb 2011


Yes. I think we paid $40-$50 a month. - May 2010
