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

Yes, with the usual menu of speeds you're used to back home. Installation generally takes 2-5 business days. - May 2022


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, 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
