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

We've had good connection apart from last year during the war with Armenia when the government restricted bandwidth. I think our connection is 50 mbps, but honestly I can't remember. We pay around $100 per month and can stream movies with no issues or lag time. I think installation took a day or two to get scheduled, but it was so long ago that I can't remember. - Jun 2021

Internet speed isn't lightning fast, but I am able to do my web-browsing and video-streaming with low levels of frustration. My organization set-up my internet before my arrival. - May 2018

Our internet was installed before we arrived. We don't pay, it's part of the deal with the rent of the house. I think others do pay about $20/month. I'd say it's great about 80% of the time. We stream videos and music, download books and haven't had really any problems. - Mar 2017
