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

Yes, installation isn't the problem but the cost and speed. It is some of the most expensive internet I've had to pay for and the speed isn't that great. - Aug 2020

We have uncapped, highest speed available at $200/month. It is still not very fast and cuts out fairly often. - May 2016

It is available and can only get better as time goes on - we had a pretty fast (for Africa), uncapped wireless home package from Vodacom by the end of our tour that we actually received a bill for at the Embassy (approx. $150/month). Before that arrangement happened, we had to pay for the data ahead of time and load it onto a USB data stick. This infuriating process involved going to the store in the mall, waiting in line, paying, then loading the credit onto the chip through a cell phone.... they're not quite up to speed on paying for things online. - Aug 2015

It's not high speed, but it's not dial-up, either. ADSL and 3G are both available - prices range from $50-100/month depending on plan. Downloads are limited. - Jun 2010

Yes, but it is slow and expensive. - Mar 2009
